New payment option for Working for Families debt from April 2020
If you receive weekly or fortnightly Working for Families payments, there is a new payment option if you have debt to pay. This depends on legislation which is expected to pass in March.
If you receive more payments than you are entitled to and end up with a bill to pay, there will be a new instalment arrangement option. You can use some of your weekly or fortnightly payments to repay the bill in instalments. You’ll be able to choose the instalment amount that works best for you, rather than having to pay the debt all in one go.
