Information to help you choose your next adventure if you’re about to or have just finished school.
If you’re an Australian Apprentice, you may be eligible for payment or some extra help.
There’s information, payments and services available if you’re between 15 and 24 and becoming independent from your parents or carer.
We can help if you're an Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander Australian looking for work. We can also help if you want to study or train to find a job.
You need to tell us about your assets so we can pay you the right amount.
We'll SMS you to ask you to update your assets. If you don’t do this before 25 September, we’ll stop your payment.
The Australian Government announced support if you live in Western Australia or New South Wales and can't earn an income.
From 25 September, we’ll once again apply the Liquid Assets Waiting Period to new claims. This means you may need to wait to get your payment.
It might be hard to manage your money, but we’ve got some great advice.
