Your reporting and payment dates may change when we close for public holidays. We may even pay you early.
All service centres and most phone lines close during the following national holidays:
- New Year’s Day
- Australia Day
- Anzac Day
- Christmas Day
- Boxing Day.
Your reporting dates may change during these closures. To help you plan ahead, we’ll list them here before the national holiday.
While we’re closed you can still report your employment income using one of our self service options. You can use:
- your myGov account to access your online accounts, including your Centrelink online account
- the Express Plus Centrelink mobile app
- phone self service.
But, if you report your income on a public holiday we’ll pay you after the public holiday.
If you don’t have one, it’s easy to create a myGov account.
