Newstart allowance

Supporting You To Find Work

If you have suddenly become unemployed, or have not had active employment for some time, then you can apply to access a Newstart Allowance. Newstart is the fortnightly income support allowance paid to people who are unemployed and actively looking for work. 

Newstart is a fantastic helping hand at a time when income is minimal. But, ensuring you get the right payment is not always stress free. At Financial Lifestyle Solutions SA, we care about helping to tide you over while you’re looking for work, and will do everything possible to ensure you receive your first payment sooner.


How Much Can I Access?

If you’re over 22 years of age and younger than 65, then you can access Newstart if you arew within income and asset test limits.

There are a large number of factors which contribute to your exact allowance, with restrictive criteria you need to consider. The best way to determine an accurate figure is to arrange a consultation with our team, who will be able to step you through the process.
