JobSeeker Extension

Posted on: Mon 16 Nov 2020

The Federal Government has announced an extension of the COVID-19 supplement payment JobSeeker until the end of March 2021, the same time as JobKeeper.

The government has confirmed the unemployment benefit will be at a lower rate during these extended months, yet no permanent rate has been set.

Pas Forgione from the Anti Poverty Network SA joins Breakfast‘s Zoe Kounadis and Tom Mann to dive into what this means for Australians benefiting from JobSeeker.
