    Dept Human Services Disaster Recovery Financial Support

    Two forms of Disaster Recovery are available through the (Australian) Department of Human Services.

    Disaster Recovery Payment

    The Department of Human Services is providing support for people adversely affected by the bushfires in New South Wales, Eastern Queensland, South Australia and Victoria through the Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment. The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment is a one-off payment to help you if a declared disaster significantly affects you. It’s not for minor damage or inconvenience.

    You can choose to get this payment in 2 instalments if you prefer. If you’re eligible you will get:

    • $1,000 per adult
    • $400 for each child younger than 16.

    Visit the Department of Human Services' website for information relevant to your location.

    Disaster Recovery Allowance

    The Department of Human Services is providing support for people who have lost income as a direct result of the bushfires in New South Wales, Eastern Queensland, South Australia and Victoria through the Disaster Recovery Allowance.

    Disaster Recovery Allowance is a short term payment to help you if a declared disaster directly affects your income. You can get it for a maximum of 13 weeks. It’s payable from the date you lose income as a direct result of the bushfires.

    The maximum payment rate is the equivalent of Newstart or Youth Allowance, based on your circumstances. Your rate of payment will be affected by your income prior to and following the disaster.

    Visit the Department of Human Services' website for information relevant to your location.
