From 15 July, you’ll get the second $750 Economic Support Payment (ESP) if you’re eligible.
This is part of the Australian Government’s financial support for people affected by coronavirus.
The second ESP is an additional payment if you’re both:
You won’t get the second ESP if you’re getting the Coronavirus Supplement, even if you got the first one.
If you’re eligible, we’ll pay it straight into your bank account. You don’t need to do anything.
If you have a Commonwealth Seniors Health Care Card, make sure we have your bank account details. Read more about how to update your bank account details through your Centrelink Online Account.
If you claim Family Tax Benefit (FTB) as a lump sum, you’ll get your ESP with your lump sum. You’ll get:
- your first ESP after you’ve claimed for 2019-20 and confirmed your income, you can’t do this until July 2020
- your second ESP after you’ve claimed for 2020-21 and confirmed your income, you can’t do this until July 2021.
The ESP is non-taxable and doesn’t count as income.
When you’ll see it in your bank account
The exact date will be different for everyone. It’s not linked to your regular payment date.
We’ll start paying it from 15 July 2020. You should see it in your bank account before the end of July.
You may see it in your bank account up to 48 hours before it appears in your online account.
