Job keeper

I worked full time for years and recently stepped down to casual in that workplace because I have received a permanent part time job elsewhere doing 32+ hours. I just got the job keeper top up from my now casual employer and I’m unsure if I am eligible for it because I have two jobs now? I don’t want to take that money if I’m going to have to pay it back for not being eligible...

Hi @AbbeyRose

 

You can earn additional income without your eligibility being affected as long as you maintain your employment (including while being stood down) with your JobKeeper-eligible employer.

 

You can find this information in our employees' frequently asked questions.

 

Hope this helps!

Hi!

Thanks for your response, even if my position has changed with the job keeper elected company the fact that I’m still employed by them is all that matters?

Hi @AbbeyRose

 

Currently, if you passed the Employee March 1st test then your employment status changing after March 1st won't affect your eligibility for Jobkeeper. You can also earn additional income elsewhere as long as you maintain your employment with your JobKeeper - eligible employer.

 

Thanks, Ari
