Rent Assistance

A regular extra payment if you pay rent and get certain payments from us.

You don’t need to give us proof of you rental arrangements for:

  • JobSeeker Payment
  • Youth Allowance
  • Austudy
  • ABSTUDY
  • Parenting Payment
  • Special Benefit
  • Farm Household Allowance.

This is due to coronavirus (COVID-19). We’ll let you know when you need to again.

We’re still doing some reviews for customers already getting payments from us. You may have got a letter asking you to confirm or update your rent details. Read more about the review of your details.
