Time limits for Farm Household Allowance

You can only get Farm Household Allowance for 3 years.

The Farm Household Allowance is being extended from 3 to 4 years. The extension comes into effect from 1 August 2018. We can’t accept claims for the 4th year before then. For support call the Farmer Assistance Hotline.

You don’t have to use these 3 years all at once.

Once you use your 3 years, your payment stops. You may be able to get an extra activity supplement in your third year.

Your case officer can help and connect you with other support services.
