Disaster payment deadline looming
The deadline for people to apply for the Australian Government’s Disaster Income Recovery Subsidy payments is Thursday.
The Disaster Income Recovery Subsidy helps employees, small business owners and farmers who experienced a loss of income as a direct result of storms or flooding between 29 November, 2010 and February this year.
The subsidy provides a fortnightly payment, equivalent to the maximum relevant Newstart Allowance rate, for a period of up to 13 weeks.
The Disaster Income Recovery Subsidy is available in more than 240 local government areas across the country, including 83 in NSW.
