Reporting and payment dates for Easter and Anzac Day 2019

The dates you need to report to us have changed for the Easter and Anzac Day 2019 public holidays. If you need to report your earnings or tell us something's changed, new reporting dates are in the reporting tables. We’ll pay you after you've reported to us.

If you report early during your assessment period you’ll need to estimate your earnings. You must do this for the full period. You must also do this for any other changes that may affect your payment. If you make a mistake, you can correct your estimate within 14 days, or when you next report.

If you report after your assessment period, we’ll pay you after you report to us. You may want to do this so you can be sure of your earnings or changes to your circumstances.

To report or tell us your earnings you can use:

You must report when you’re due, so we can pay you.

Payment dates for Easter and Anzac Day 2019 if you don’t need to report

We won't delay payments because of the public holiday, but we may pay you earlier than normal. An early payment is your normal payment, just paid early.

Where we pay an early payment, we pay as close to and before your normal payment day. You'll need to budget so this payment lasts until your next payment is due.

If you don't need to report earnings, we'll pay you early.
