Services Australia podcast: Older Australians and JobKeeper Payment

Millions of Australians have been left unemployed, stood down or had their hours reduced due to COVID-19 restrictions. In this podcast, Services Australia General Manager Hank Jongen takes a closer look at the unique impacts for working older Australians.

Hank speaks with Justin Bott from our Financial Information Service about the options available, including Age Pension, JobKeeper Payment and the Work Bonus.

“The podcast delves into some of the common questions we’re getting from older Australians, including aspects of self-employment,” Hank said.

“The Financial Information Service provides free, independent and confidential information, tools and resources.

“Justin is able to provide some really useful information to help customers make informed decisions about their current and future financial needs.

“It’s great to be able to share this information through the current series. I’m sure it will be of real interest to older Australians still in the workforce who have been impacted by the pandemic restrictions.”
