Important information from MSD

MSD have asked us to share this important information with our networks:

  • Please don’t worry – you’ll continue to be paid your regular benefit payments.
  • MSD has already done a bunch of things to make it easier for now.
  • If you’re already getting Jobseeker Support, Sole Parent Support or Supported Living Payment, you don’t need to provide another medical certificate.
  • If you’re already getting Disability Allowance and Child Disability Allowance you don’t need to do anything - they will continue to be paid.
  • For now there will be no annual reviews or social housing reviews.
  • Special benefits won’t expire.

  • There will be no new obligation failures for now.

  • Remember, the Work and Income website, http://www.workandincome.govt.nz is the place to go for the latest information.


    Thank you so much for your support at this time.
