Wicks welcomes extension of coronavirus payments

Federal Member for Robertson Ms Lucy Wicks has welcomed the extension of the JobKeeper program and the coronavirus supplement.

She said the JobKeeper Payment will continue at its current level until September 27 after which it will be extended for a further six months to March 28, 2021.

"JobKeeper 2.0 will help business and those without work to not only get through this crisis but also to recover on the other side," she said.

A two-tiered payment will also be introduced so as to better reflect the pre-Covid-19 income of payment recipients.

The two payments will be $1200 and $750 per fortnight after September 27, with the lower payment for employees who worked less than 20 hours a week in the month of February pre-Covid-19, she said.

From January 4, the two payment will be $1000 and $650.

The temporary coronavirus supplement for those on income support will also be extended until the end of the year.

The $550 per fortnight supplement will continue until September 24.

After that, the supplement will be $250 per fortnight.

"The Morrison Government's focus remains on the safety of all Australians and I know that the extension from September will bring a sigh of relief from many in our community," Mrs Wicks said.
