Determinations/Social Security as made
This instrument amends multiple instruments and modifies the Social Security Act 1991. It extends the period in respect of which the COVID-19 supplement will be paid. This instrument also reinstates the assets tests and the liquid assets test waiting period for certain payments. This instrument temporarily increases the income free area to $300 a fortnight for JobSeeker Payment recipients (except recipients who are both not a member of a couple and who are the principal carer of a child) and Youth Allowance (Other) recipients and increases the partner income taper rate for JobSeeker Payment recipients from 25 cents for every dollar over the partner income free area to 27 cents for every dollar over the partner income free area. This instrument also extends other measures put in place by the Social Security (Coronavirus Economic Response—2020 Measures No. 10) Determination 2020 to assist social security payment recipients impacted by COVID-19.
