Update: Issue with Carer’s Support Grant

The Department is aware that, of the 110,000 customers due to receive Carer’s Support Grant today, approximately 1,500 recipients have been affected by a delay in payment. The affected payments were due to be paid by electronic fund transfer into bank accounts, at post offices and by cheque.

We would like to inform affected customers that the electronic payments will be processed overnight tonight, 7th June, and are due to be in customers’ bank accounts next Monday, 11th June, and in post office accounts next Tuesday, 12th June.  Customers who are paid this Grant by cheque will receive their payment next week, commencing 11th June.

The Department sincerely apologises to all affected customers for the inconvenience caused.
