Extension to COVID-19 hardship assistance for whānau

The Government has extended the increased income limits for hardship assistance until Thursday 30 June. This means more casual or part-time workers, or people who aren’t already getting financial support, will continue to be eligible for help with their immediate or emergency costs. This is especially important for those who need direct help as part of the COVID-19 welfare response. People new to MSD can check these links to see the new income limits:

They’ll be asked some easy questions about their costs, then MSD will let them know about any Work and Income payments they may be able to get. Alternatively, if they’d like to talk with MSD, they can call:
