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.
If you got the Coronavirus Supplement, you need to declare it as income in your tax return for the 2020–21 financial year.
The Coronavirus Supplement won’t be shown separately on your Centrelink payment summary.
Your total Centrelink payment rate was increased if you were paid the Coronavirus Supplement.
Complete the following steps to claim Farm Household Allowance (FHA). Before you start, check if you can get it.
