Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment – NSW

18 September 2020

The Australian Government's Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment is a lump sum payment to help you during the 14 days you need to self-isolate, quarantine or care for someone. If you need longer-term help, you may be eligible for other payments.

The Pandemic Leave Disaster Payment is for people living in NSW who can't earn an income because they must self-isolate, quarantine or care for someone who has COVID-19.

To be eligible, you must be directed to self-isolate or quarantine by NSW Health.
