JobKeeper Payment during Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Your employer may have paid you JobKeeper Payment during Coronavirus (COVID-19). The Australian Taxation Office paid this to your employer if they’re eligible.

JobKeeper Payment was a subsidy to help small businesses affected by COVID-19. The ATO paid JobKeeper Payment to eligible employers. It stopped on 28 March 2021 and is no longer available.

If you need financial support, you may be able to get an income support payment from us. The type of payment depends on your circumstances. Find out more about payments for job seekers.

You can read more about JobKeeper Payment at the ATO’s website.
