COVID-19 Disaster Payments
Due to the current lockdown implemented across the state, the NSW Government will support eligible individual's with the COVID-19 disaster payment.
Eligible people will receive $750 per week if they have lost 20 or more hours of work, and $450 per week if they have lost between 8 and less than 20 hours of work, or a full day of work. People who currently receive an income support payment can also receive an extra payment of $200 if they have lost at least eight hours of work and meet the other eligibility requirements for the COVID-19 Disaster Payment.
The simplest and fastest way to claim is online through myGov. People can prepare to claim by creating a myGov account if they don’t already have one.
