Greater Melbourne September 2021
If you lost work or income during the COVID-19 restrictions in Greater Melbourne and Shepparton from 6 August 2021, you may be eligible for COVID-19 Disaster Payment.
80% of people 16 years or older in Victoria have been fully vaccinated with 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine.
Claims for relevant periods before Greater Melbourne reached 80% fully vaccinated have closed.
You can only reapply for COVID-19 Disaster Payment if you’ve already been granted the payment for the 29 October to 4 November 2021 relevant period.
This is the date for claiming if you’re eligible. Claims for the 5 to 11 November 2021 relevant period have closed.
|Relevant period||Claims open||Claims close|
|12 to 18 November 2021||19 November 2021||9 December 2021|
If you need further financial support, test your eligibility for an income support payment. Use our Payment and Service Finder to see what payments and services you may get.
The payment amounts changed in the first and second week after Victoria reached the 80% vaccination rate. Read how much you can get.
