You might be eligible for...

JobKeeper Payment

Your employer will tell you if they’re eligible to claim and pay you JobKeeper Payment.

For your employer to pass this payment on to you, you must be all of the following:

  • a current employee of an eligible business
  • full time, part time or a casual employee who has been with their employer for at least 12 months as at 1 March 2020
  • at least 16 years old
  • an Australian citizen, the holder of a permanent visa, or a Special Category (Subclass 444) Visa Holder
  • a resident for Australian tax purposes on 1 March 2020.

Your employer will pay you at least $1,500 a fortnight before tax if they employed you on 1 March 2020. This includes if your employer then stood you down or you stopped working with them and they then reengaged you.

Only 1 eligible employer can pay you JobKeeper Payment. Contact your main employer if you have multiple employers.
