Coronavirus Supplement

Additional financial support when you’re affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19).

You may be able to get the fortnightly Coronavirus Supplement if you get an eligible income support payment.

The Coronavirus Supplement of $550 per fortnight is available until 24 September 2020. It’s been extended until 31 December 2020 at a rate of $250 per fortnight.

The Coronavirus Supplement is taxable income. You can ask us to set up a tax deduction for you. This means that your tax will come out of your payment automatically.
