Reporting and payment dates if you need to report

The dates you need to report to us have changed for the Christmas 2019 and New Year 2020 public holidays. 

If you report early during your assessment period you’ll need to estimate your earnings. You must do this for your 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 you can use:

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

Payment dates if you don’t need to report

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

We won't delay payments because of a 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 day.
