I'm new

Hello,
Just wondering if I am an eligible employee for job keeper payment second term (Sep 2020) through my employer as I was granted a permanent Resident visa on 06 July 2020. I am working for the last 3 years for this employer. As my PR granted after March 1, I was not able to receive the first term Jobseeker payment. I understand there are lot of people who have similar situations and desperately looking for second term support.

Your guidance is highly appreciated.
Thanks

Hi @johns785

 

We now have some new information on our website about the announced JobKeeper changes. The key date for assessing which employees are eligible for JobKeeper is now 1 July 2020, rather than 1 March 2020. For more information about the 1 July 2020 test, have a look at our website.

 

You will see that despite this change, you still won't be eligible as you needed to meet the residency requirement as at 1 July 2020. Becoming a permanent resident on 6 July 2020 means that you haven't met this requirement.

 

Depending on your circumstances, becoming a permanent resident means that you may now be eligible for one of the other COVID-19 measures such as early release of super. Refer to the eligibility requirements for more information.

 

Good luck with it all.

No one knows yet. They have not even written the regulations that will govern this part of the scheme. Hopefully they will release the rules really soon
