How much you can get

The amount you can get depends on your situation.

The Energy Assistance Payment is a one off payment of:

  • $75 for singles
  • $62.50 for each eligible member of a couple
  • $75 for each eligible member of a couple who are living apart due to ill health.

If you’re eligible, we’ll pay the amount straight into your bank account. You don’t need to contact us or do anything. If you are eligible, we’ll pay this automatically in to your account.
