Covid disaster payments

A reminder the Federal Government’s COVID-19 Disaster Payment kicks in from the 5th of July for everyone in Greater Sydney. 

Payments are $500 a week for those who have lost more than 20 hours of work and $325 a week for people who have lost less than 20 hours of work a week due to the Commonwealth declaring a COVID-19 hotspot and state government public health orders and restrictions that last for more than 7 days. 

The payment has been available since 1 July for the initial 7 LGAs in Sydney that were the first declared a Commonwealth hotspot.
