How much you can get

There are payment limits for the MH17 Family Support Package.

If you’re eligible, you can get both:

  • a one-off payment of up to $2,000 towards the cost of airfares, insurance and transport to attend the proceedings
  • a one-off living allowance payment to include your accommodation.

The living allowance payment is up to $210 per night, capped at $1,500 per family member.

If more than 2 family members apply, we’ll decide who gets the payment on a case-by-case basis.

In assessing who gets the payment, we’ll consider claims in the following order:

  1. Partners.
  2. Children.
  3. Parents.
  4. Siblings.
  5. Step-parents.
  6. Step-siblings.
