Individuals claiming an income support payment may be eligible for a Crisis Payment under a proposed new category, if they are required to self-isolate at home due to the Coronavirus.
At the time of claiming the Crisis Payment, a person must:
▪ have made a claim and qualify for an income support payment, and
▪ satisfy requirements of any legislative instruments made by the Minister, including the need to self-isolate.
The one-off Crisis Payment is tax-free and is equal to one week your income support payment
