My 17yr old casual worker has been receiving the jobkeeper payment but has recently been told that it will be taken off her Because full time students that are not independent cannot receive it but my daughter doesn't attend school full time she is a TAFE student 2 days a week but still lives at home, can she still receive the jobkeeper payment.

Hi @Issy722

 

See Are you an eligible employee. We are talking JobKeeper payments here of course not Jobseeker. It should answer your question.

 

Kind regards

My daughter is eligible she is
17yrs old has worked casually for her employer for 2.5yrs avg of 10hrs per week and has been getting the job keeper payment. Her employer emailed yesterday saying that with new regulations all full time students that aren't dependant Can not receive it anymore. But my daughter isn't a full time student so I'm confused. She's not A full time student but does live at home. Can they take the jobkeeper off her.

My daughter is in the same boat. She is 16, goes to TAFE 1 day per week and runs a small business PT on the other days and lives at home. From reading the criteria I think this makes her eligible as she is NOT a full time student.

I see that they have to be over 16 years of age on the Jobkeeper form but can't see any mention they can't be full time student as well?

It was a current update yesterday and it's says " full time students that are dependant are not eligible" but my daughter isn't a full time student. Very confusing
