Additional financial support when you’re affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19).
There’s additional financial help if you get an income support payment due to Coronavirus (COVID-19).
You may be able to get a fortnightly payment of $550 if you get an eligible income support payment.
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.
