We have information about finances during coronavirus (COVID-19)
12 May 2020
The Financial Information Service (FIS) can help you make informed decisions about your finances.
Due to coronavirus (COVID-19), there is financial uncertainty for many Australians.
Your employer may have stood you down from your job, or you may have lost your job.
Perhaps you’re worried it has affected your investments, and you don’t know what you can do about it.
Or you may be thinking about early withdrawal of your super through the ATO, or deferring your mortgage repayments.
These are important decisions. The choices you make now can have a big impact on how your finances look in years to come.
Our FIS Officers can discuss your options with you. They can talk about how these decisions might affect your financial position both now and in the future.
Call the FIS phone line to speak to a FIS Officer. When you hear the prompt about why you’re calling, say Financial Information Service.

You can get some of your super early if you’re in financial stress due to COVID-19.
During the pause, we won’t refer your debt to external collection agencies or garnishee your tax refund.
