$250 centrelink payment available to millions of Aussies

Around 5.1 million Australians are set to receive two $250 payments.

The payments were originally unveiled as part of the 2020-21 budget and have now been rubber-stamped.

They are set to be paid progressively from 30 November 2020 and the second from 1 March 2021.

Those eligible for the handout include aged and disability pensioners, veterans, people on carer payments and family tax benefit recipients, as well as (CSHC) and pensioner concession cardholders.

“We can now deliver more practical support to older Australians, families and young people through these targeted, temporary initiatives in our social security system,” Minister for Families and Social Services Anne Ruston said.
