Public holiday reporting and payment dates

Your reporting and payment dates may change when we close for public holidays. We may pay you early.

Office and call centre closures

Your reporting dates may change when we close on these national public holidays:

  • Australia Day
  • Easter
  • Anzac
  • Christmas
  • New Year.

Our service centres and most call centres are closed over these days.

To help you plan ahead, we share the changes to reporting and payment dates in the lead up to these national public holidays.

For closures on state public holidays, please check at your local service centre.

How you can report during holiday closures

You can use your Centrelink online account through myGov to do any of the following:

If you don’t have one, it’s easy to create a myGov account.

You can also use our Express Plus mobile apps and phone self service.

You can still report your income to us, even when we’re closed. However, if you do this on a public holiday we’ll pay you after the public holiday.

Read our self service options.
