Possible new payments

Senator Ruston is also examining all visa categories to see if there are foreign workers who should be given welfare.

The government already flagged people who were on the pathway to citizenship would have welfare waiting periods waived so they could access the same benefits as Australian jobseekers.

Social services organisations are relieved by changes made so far.

Australian Council of Social Services head Cassandra Goldie said the organisation would also continue to advocate for others who needed support including asylum seekers, people with a disability and their carers.

...and we get the ability to withdraw some money from our super. I have $851 in my super. Thanks again to the Liberals for ensuring we're treated as subhuman.

It will be handy for some people, who have been working for some years. But it would be at the expense of a reduced retirement income, unless they pay extra from personal income, to catch up later.

I am not sure how the Liberals are at fault for that?

To be honest, I think they are doing a reasonable job in keeping most peoples incomes coming in.

Many countries have rules that limit the ability for people to access their retirement savings. Considering there is no other legislated retirement savings program, it's sensible to make sure people have limited ability to access what they have, otherwise too many will be turning to the government for help when they retire.

I'm not talking about retirement savings, I'm talking about those of us who cannot qualify for Centrelink or jobkeeper starving in the streets. Other countries are taking care of their temporary visa holders because it's the right thing to do. As Aussie residents we don't qualify for assistance back home either.

Canaus is in the unenviable position of being on a temporary visa as a partner to someone who is not a permanent resident or citizen.
As such neither he or possibly even his partner are entitled to welfare payments.
This article from New Zealand yesterday helps explain the situation.

You said "and we get the ability to withdraw some money from our super. I have $851 in my super. Thanks again to the Liberals for ensuring we're treated as subhuman."
And blamed the liberals for that.

I am not a mind reader, and did not realise that the liberals are causing you to starve.

I still don't understand why you think the liberals are treating you as subhuman and now causing you to starve.

The liberals have given many benefits to help people during this crisis.

It would have helped if he had explained that, instead of relating it to super.

My wife is a Permanent Resident, and is also not entitled to anything.

There are many, not just temporary visa holders that are not entitled.

The goverment (National Cabinet) have come up with a fast solution to help the majority.

Some of us are not in that majority.

New Zealanders who are on 444 visas and arrived before 26 February 2001 will have access to welfare payments and the JobKeeper payment.

444 visa holders who arrived after 2001 have access to the JobKeeper payment. Those who have lived in Australia for 10 years or more have access to JobSeeker payments for six months.
