Who can get it

You can get financial assistance for coronavirus if you get an eligible income support payment.

You’ll automatically get the supplement if you’re getting 1 of the following payments:

  • Widow Allowance
  • Sickness Allowance
  • Youth Allowance
  • Austudy
  • ABSTUDY Living Allowance
  • Parenting Payment
  • Farm Household Allowance
  • Special Benefit.

We’ll pay it to you automatically from 27 April 2020 until 24 September 2020 as part of your usual payment.

If you aren’t eligible for the Coronavirus Supplement, you may get 1 or both Economic Support Payments.
