Employment income reporting
How much you or your partner get paid affects your payment. We need to know what you both get paid so we can pay you the right amount.
We’re contacting people who earn the same amount each pay to check their current employment income. They’ll also need to start reporting every 2 weeks. Find out if this impacts you.
