As we are receiving information we are pushing the information to our clients in order that they are up-to-date.

The below we feel is very relevant to anyone who over the past few days has found they have been stood down, business owners who may have just or are anticipating or have of stood staff down and closing for the duration. Finally business owners themselves, who are now in a situation of no income through forced closure.

Following is an update from Services Australia from their Facebook page Services Aust regarding claims for the JobSeeker.this Facebook page is a very relevant to follow in these times

“Important update: If you’ve registered an intent to claim, we will contact you over the coming days to let you know what to do next. Your next steps will depend on your specific circumstances, so please wait for us to contact you. There’s no need to register more than one intent to claim, and no need to call or visit us.

  • If you register your intent to claim by Sunday 29 March, and you complete your full claim by 19 April, we’ll pay your claim from 23 March.
  • If you have lodged a full claim instead of registering an intent to claim, we will pay your claim from 23 March (or earlier if you claimed earlier), if you complete it before 29 March.
  • If you’ve lost income because of corona virus and you haven’t yet tried to access support, please go to our website for more information: www.servicesaustralia.gov.au/covid-19

Our staff are working above and beyond to make sure people can access support as quickly as possible. Thank you for your continued patience.”
