COVID-19 Income Relief Payment

The COVID-19 Income Relief Payment has now stopped. The final day of the Income Relief Payment was 4 February 2021. 

The Income Relief Payment was a temporary, short-term support for people who lost their jobs from 1 March to 30 October 2020 because of COVID-19.

It offered up to 12 weeks of payments for people who no longer had work while they looked for other employment.
