These are, of course, not all the payments that the Australian government provides to Kiwis – however, this does cover most of the big ones.   Most of the others are highly circumstantial and you would need to take into consideration your personal situation and speak to Centrelink to see if you would be eligible – but they are definitely worth looking into! These can include:

  • Parental Leave Pay (after the birth of a child);
  • Special Benefit payment;
  • Rent Assistance payment;
  • Newborn supplement.
