Your requirements may be paused if you’re affected by floods in North West Queensland

10 March 2023

Mutual obligation and participation requirements are paused for people in some flood-affected areas.

If you’re in a flood-affected area of North West Queensland, your mutual obligation or participation requirements may have been paused.

You must still report any income you and your partner get every 2 weeks, even if it’s $0. This is so we can pay you the right amount.

During this period, no payment suspensions or financial penalties will apply if you don’t meet your mutual obligation or participation requirements.
