I have a casual employee who received the 6 week payment as she was 17.  She was 18 in June still at school and living at home.  Does she now qualify with the new job keeper requirements in August.  I cannot find anything on line saying she doesnt now qualify.

Please help

Hi @Meg1303,

 

I have great news for you.

 

As of 3 August 2020, if the employee was employed by you on 1 March 2020 but was not eligible for fortnights ending on or before 2 August 2020 because they only turned 18 after 1 March 2020, they are now considered eligible as long as they meet the other eligibility criteria.

 

You can find more information about the JobKeeper extension on our website.

 

All the best!
