Received the maximum period of payment

We can help you when you reach the end of your time on Farm Household Allowance (FHA).

You can get FHA for up to 4 years in specific 10 year periods.

We count 4 years as a total of 1,460 days.

If you reach the end of your 4 years before 1 July 2024, you can apply again then.

As you enter the fourth year of payment, talk to your Farm Household Case Officer. They can help you to transition off the payment.
