Getting help during coronavirus (COVID-19)

We have payments and support if you’re affected by COVID-19.

You can now include periods you got COVID-19 Disaster Payment in the work test for Parental Leave Pay and Dad and Partner Pay. Read more about COVID-19 payments and the work test.

If you’ve been affected by a lockdown or restrictions there’s support available.

If you need a payment we may be able to help. Use our payment guide to check what you may get.

You can do most of your Centrelink, Medicare or Child Support business with us online through myGov. Check if restrictions apply before you visit a service centre.
