$250 Centrelink payment for pensioners during COVID-19 due from November 30

While 5.1 million Australians are locked in to receive the first of two $250 handouts next week, there’s still time for more to claim the second instalment.

The Economic Support Payments, originally unveiled as part of the 2020-21 budget, are set to be paid progressively from November 30 and March 1 to those 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.

Recipients will receive a $250 cash boost in December and another $250 in March 2021. Credit: Traceydee Photography/Getty Images
