You need to report any changes to you circumstances.
If you get NZ DRA you’ll need to report any changes in your circumstances. This includes letting us know if you earn more than or the same as the average weekly income while you get the payment. This equates to $1,713.90 per week from 1 January 2021.

It’s your responsibility to decide to claim this payment based on your personal circumstances. It’s also your responsibility to make sure the information you give us in your claim is true and correct.
You’ll need to update your income estimate if any of the following applies to you:
- you get Family Tax Benefit
- you get Child Support Subsidy
- you have a current Child Support assessment.
