  • New residents will wait four years before they can receive most government payments in Australia.
  • New residents will wait four years for carer payment and Family Tax Benefit Part A and B, in line with other working-age payments.
  • Only those receiving their relevant visas on or after 1 January 2022 will be affected by these changes
