Centrelink recipients who live in a flood-affected area have had their mutual obligation requirements paused - but it differs depending on where you live.

While requirements have been paused, Centrelink recipients must still report any income they or their partner get every two weeks - even if it’s $0 - to ensure they’re paid correctly.

However, no payment suspensions or financial penalties will apply if someone doesn't meet their mutual obligation or participation requirements.
