The income test for JobSeeker payments has been temporarily adjusted for those who have a partner who is still earning income.
Any Australian who loses their job will be eligible for the JobSeeker payment as long as their partner earns less than $79,600, which is up from $48,000 previously. Any entitlement to the JobSeeker payment will mean you are also entitled to the full JobSeeker supplement of an additional $550 per fortnight on top of whatever your JobSeeker entitlement is. A full entitlement is around $1,100 per fortnight.
It should be noted that anyone who is receiving the new JobKeeper payment, will not be eligible for the JobSeeker payment. The JobKeeper payment is worth around $400 more per fortnight and more if you only have a partial entitlement to JobSeeker.
