Public Holiday reporting dates and payment arrangements

We have special arrangements in place during the 2015 Easter holiday period to make sure you are not disadvantaged by office closures. 

Holiday closures

We will be closed on:

  • Good Friday 3 April 2015
  • Easter Monday 6 April 2015

Self service still available

You can use your myGov account, online accounts, Express Plus mobile apps and phone self service during the Easter holiday periods.

You can use these services to report your employment income. However, if you do this on a public holiday you will not be paid until after the public holiday.

You can also use your Centrelink online account through myGov to reschedule some of your appointments, apply for an advance payment or request a document.

If you don’t have a myGov account, creating one is easy at my.gov.au

Anzac Day 2015

As Anzac Day falls on Saturday 25 April 2015 and all states and territories, apart from Western Australia, will observe the holiday on that day, there will be no public holiday reporting dates and payment arrangements for Anzac Day 2015.

If you are a Western Australian customer due to report your income on Monday 27 April 2015 you can use your myGov account, online accounts, Express Plus mobile apps and phone self service

Important information for reporting

If you are due to report your earnings or employment on a holiday closure date there are alternative reporting dates for you to report. Your payment will be made after you have reported to us.

If you report early during your assessment period, you must estimate your earnings or other changes for the full period. You can correct your estimate within 14 days, or when you next report.

You can choose to report after your assessment period, however, you will not be paid until you report. You may want to do this so you can be sure of your earnings or changes to your circumstances.

Important information for payments

Payments that are paid automatically will not be delayed by the holidays, but some payments may be made earlier than usual. An early payment is not an extra payment. It’s just your normal payment paid early. You will need to budget carefully so this payment lasts until your next payment is due.

Where payments are made early, they are paid as close as possible before your usual payment day to minimise disruption to your budgeting patterns.
