Hi  <<First Name>>,

Important information regarding the COVID-19 Disaster Payment


Now that Victoria has over 70% of people 16 years or older fully vaccinated, automatic payments for the COVID-19 Disaster Payment have now stopped as from Friday, 22 October 2021.

When Victoria reaches 80% of people 16 years or older who are fully vaccinated with 2 doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, there will be more changes to the COVID-19 Disaster Payment.

You can only reapply for COVID-19 Disaster Payment if you’ve been granted for a relevant period which includes the date Victoria reaches 80% full vaccination.

If you’ve been granted COVID-19 Disaster Payment for a relevant period which includes the date Victoria reaches 80% fully vaccinated, you can reapply for the payment for up to 2 more weeks.

The COVID-19 Disaster Payment will reduce over a period of up to 2 weeks.
The first week after Victoria reaches 80% fully vaccinated, COVID-19 Disaster Payment will be one payment of:  
  • $450 if you’ve lost more than 8 hours or a full day of work and you’re not getting an eligible Centrelink or Department of Veterans’ Affairs (DVA) payment
  • $100 if you’ve lost more than 8 hours or a full day of work and you’re getting an eligible Centrelink or DVA payment.
The second week after Victoria reaches 80% fully vaccinated rates, COVID-19 Disaster Payment will:  
  • be one $320 payment if you’ve lost more than 8 hours or a full day of work and you’re not getting an eligible Centrelink or DVA payment
  • end if you’re getting an eligible Centrelink or DVA payment.
After this period, the COVID-19 Disaster Payment won’t be available in Victoria.
