More financial support if you lost income due to the NSW Floods

8 April 2022

The Disaster Recovery Allowance Top-up is additional help for eligible people who live or work in Lismore, NSW.

You’ll get the Disaster Recovery Allowance (DRA) Top-up if you meet the following rules:

  • you received or will get DRA or New Zealand (NZ) DRA
  • you lived or worked in the Local Government Area of Lismore when it was impacted by the floods.

You don’t need to submit a claim for this payment. We’ll pay it into your nominated bank account.

This payment is $350 and you can get it each week for up to 13 weeks.

If you haven’t claimed DRA or NZ DRA yet, you can still be eligible for the Top-up. You have until the due date to submit your claim. Check the claims due date for NSW Floods, February 2022.
