We're here to help

This guide helps you find out the ways we can help you and your family.

We’ll ask you some questions. At the end, we’ll tell you the payments we think you might be able to get. It won’t take long, around 5 minutes.

The more info you can give, the more accurate the results will be. We won’t keep your answers.

Not a New Zealand citizen or resident, or not currently living in New Zealand? You may not be able to receive payments from us. Please visit www.govt.nz to find out other ways we can help you.
