THE Australian Government and various government departments, agencies and other organisations have rolled out support packages and special payments to help people affected financially by measures to control COVID-19.
ac.care’s financial counselling team has helped compile a handy list of the various options available if you are facing financial uncertainty and unsure which support package is best suited to your situation.
For the latest information on government support, visit treasury.gov.au/coronavirus and www.dss.gov.au/about-the-department/coronavirus-covid-19-information-and-support, or

Our financial counselling team can also be contacted on 1300 ACCARE (1300 22 22 73) if you would like to arrange an appointment for advice specific to your situation.
