$250 Centrelink payment eligibility criteria needs to be met by end of week

Millions of Australians could miss out on $250 in coronavirus support payments if they don’t lock in their eligibility in the next two days.

The Federal Budget included $500 – split into two $250 payments – for the 5.1 million Australians most impacted by the pandemic.

Among them are pensioners and self-funded retirees, as well as people living with disabilities, their carers and low-income families.

Australians receiving Family Tax Benefit payments or the Double Orphan Pension and those who have a Commonwealth Seniors Health Card are eligible.

But with the first $250 cash handout to be distributed next week, time is running down for Australians to secure their payment.
