17 years old and a student

I'm new

Hello,

I am a 17 year old that has a casual job but I am also a full time student as well.

I understand I cannot get Jobkeeper now because the rules changed to stop full time students that are not independant.

 

Technically I am not 'independant' as I work and have to pay 'Board', 'Car insurance', 'Car Registration' as well as 'Fuel' for my transport to and from classes.

 

How is this determind by the ATO?

Hi @Gryan

Thanks for your question. I appreciate it’s a confusing time.

To ensure the integrity and the efficient operation of the JobKeeper Payment scheme, the Government is clarifying the operation of some rules including full time students aged 16 and 17 years old.

It’s important to note the eligibility conditions for Full time students aged 16 and 17 years old.

The information contained in this Thread may also help.

Please keep an eye on our website for ongoing updates.

Hope this assists you.
