Australia provides the COVID-19 Disaster Payment divided into three different rates based on the number of hours of work lost by an eligible recipient and whether or not they are receiving an income support payment:
- $200 per week for those in receipt of an income support payment who lost eight or more hours of work per week or a full day of their usual hours per week (what the person was scheduled to work including shifts of less than eight hours) as a result of the lockdown
- $450 for those who lost between eight and less than 20 hours of work per week or a full day of their usual work hours per week as a result of the lockdown and
- $750 for those who lost 20 hours or more of work as a result of the lockdown.
