How much you can get
The amount of Farm Household Allowance you can get depends on your circumstances.
If you have a partner, we may pay the allowance to both of you. You may be able to submit a combined claim.
If you get Farm Household Allowance you'll get all the following:
- a fortnightly payment for up to 4 years in each specific 10 year period
- activity supplements up to a lifetime limit of $10,000 to pay for activities to help improve your financial position
- a Farm Household Case Officer to work with you to help you improve your financial circumstances.
You’ll get Coronavirus Supplement at a rate of $150 per fortnight until 31 March 2021. Your first payment in April may include a partial increase to your regular payment amount and a final Coronavirus Supplement payment. This applies if your reporting date is on or before 13 April 2021. You’ll only get the Coronavirus Supplement if you get at least $1 of your regular payment.
The regular payment rate increased from 1 April 2021 by $50 per fortnight.
