Streamlining Services for Refugees

This fact sheet summarises the Streamlining Services for Refugees measure. Announced in the 2018-19 Budget, from January 2019 employment services for newly arrived refugees will be streamlined to support them to effectively settle into their new life in Australia. Instead of being referred to jobactive 13 weeks after they start receiving activity tested income support, newly arrived refugees will be eligible for full jobactive services after six months on activity tested income support.
