Omicron outbreak – support for Incolink members

If you are still employed but unable to work as a result of COVID-19, you may be eligible to access some of your Incolink funds by way of the Incolink COVID-19 Payment.

Eligible worker members receive an Incolink COVID-19 payment of $2,000 or the balance of your account (whichever amount is lower) if you must self-isolate or if you are stood down. You can re-apply for this every 28-days if you continue to be eligible and funds remain in your account.
