Financial Assistance through WINZ

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Author: SuperUser Account

If you are struggling with income levels, follow the link below to find out the assistance available from Work & Income:

http://www.workandincome.govt.nz/individuals/how-we-can-help-you/dont-have-enough-income.html#Helpifyouneedtopaysomethingurgently2

Share-milkers - if you could really do with $152 a week (1 child) or $217 (2 children) or $281 (3 children) and your income for the period ending March 2017 is going to be less than $36500 PLEASE talk to your Accountant about receiving Working for Families weekly or fortnightly. Most prefer to receive it in a lump sum at the end of the year to reduce tax bills BUT with the payout drop and high expenses you may not have a tax bill in March 2017 - you may have overpaid through.
