COVID-19 Income Relief Payment Announced

May 25th 2020
If you lose your job (including self-employment) due to COVID-19, you may be eligible for the COVID-19 Income Relief Payment announced by Work and Income today.

Work and Income Te Hiranga Tangata have announced this morning that people who have lost their jobs from 1 March to 30 October 2020 could get up to 12 weeks of payments, to help with living costs after a sudden job loss, and give you time to find other work.

This support is available for New Zalanders who have lost either full-time of part time employment and is available from 8 June 2020.

You can apply online for the Income Relief Payment and more information is on the Work and Income website here.
