3.10.3.30 Some YA Payments Made Weekly

Summary

YA recipients under the age of 18 may receive their payment on a weekly basis. These recipients still have fortnightly entitlement periods (1.1.E.125) but are paid weekly in arrears. The intention of this measure is to encourage more effective budgeting by recipients requiring this assistance.
