Last chance to claim flood payments

The end date for applying for Southern NSW flood payments is fast approaching, so if you were affected by the major flooding in the Forbes and Central Darling areas, it’s time to lodge your claim.

The Australian Government Disaster Recovery Payment provides a one-off payment of $1000 for eligible adults and $400 for each eligible child in areas declared disaster zones. It is available to those:

  • whose home was destroyed or severely damaged,
  • who were seriously injured in the disaster,
  • who were stranded in, or unable to gain access to their for 24 hours or more, or
  • whose home was without utilities or other essential services for at least 48 hours

If you have been affected by the flooding and have yet to apply for your payment, you have until Thursday 25 October to do so. For more information or to make a claim, visit
