When to report
If you’re getting an income support payment, we’ll tell you when you need to report any other income you get.
If you report late, your payment could be late. If you don’t report and you’re meant to, we won’t pay you.
You can report online up to 27 days after your reporting date. If you’re more than 27 days late, you need to call us on your regular payment line. There are 2 types of reporting:
- scheduled reporting
- unscheduled reporting.
- ABSTUDY Living Allowance
- Age Pension
- Carer Payment
- Parenting Payment Single and Partnered
- Youth Allowance as a Student.
You must call your regular payment line to tell us when you start or stop working if you either:
- get a different payment from us
- have a partner who gets Disability Support Pension.
If you need to report your employment income, it’ll usually be every 14 days, on a date we tell you. We call this scheduled reporting.
