  • 处于培训的头24个月内

  • actively training through a transitional Industry Training Organisation (ITO) or a provider
  • training for a New Zealand Apprenticeship or Managed Apprenticeship recognised by the Tertiary Education Commission
  • in their first 24 months of training (this includes any previous apprenticeship enrolment, including any other apprenticeships, with the same transitional ITO or provider).

Apprenticeship Boost can be paid for an apprentice who is self-employed if they’re employed or contracted by you. You need to apply for your apprentice, and you need to have a training agreement between yourself, your apprentice and your TEC approved transitional ITO or provider. If you’re self-employed, contact the company overseeing your apprenticeship. They’ll need to apply on your behalf.

You can’t get Apprenticeship Boost for your apprentice if you’re:

  • already getting another wage subsidy from us for this apprentice (eg, Flexi-wage, the COVID-19 Wage Subsidy or Mana in Mahi)

雇主须支付给学徒最低工资或学徒期工资。

Payment rates

You can get Apprenticeship Boost for a maximum of 24 months per apprentice, and it’s paid in advance.

How much you can get depends on whether your apprentice is in their first or second year of training:

  • First year apprentices can get $1,000 a month
  • Second year apprentices can get $500 a month.

These amounts don’t include GST. If you’re GST registered, you’ll be paid the amount plus GST.

You must pay your apprentice at least the minimum or training wage.

Which year of training your apprentice is in:

If your apprentice has been previously enrolled in any other apprenticeship with the same transitional ITO (TITO) or provider, this will be counted towards their training provided by TEC.

For example: In 2020 your apprentice completed a 12 month beauty therapy course with HITO. In 2020 your apprentice also started a hairdressing course, also with HITO. If you apply for Apprenticeship Boost, you would be eligible to get $500 per month, as your apprentice is in their 2nd year of training.

Child Disability Allowance

Child Disability Allowance is a fortnightly payment made to the main carer of a child or young person with a serious disability. It is paid in recognition of the extra care and attention needed for that child.

Who can get it

You may get a Child Disability Allowance if:

  • you are the main carer of the child (or if there is no main carer, you have care of the child for the time being)
  • you are a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
  • the child has been assessed as needing constant care and attention for at least 12 months because of a serious disability
  • the child or young person is under 18.

Both you and the child should also normally live in New Zealand and intend to stay here.

You may be able to get both the Disability Allowance and the Child Disability Allowance for the same child. But you can’t get this allowance if the child already gets a benefit (except for the Orphan’s or Unsupported Child’s Benefit). If the child is 16 or over, they may be able to get Supported Living Payment.

You can’t get a Child Disability Allowance if you get board payments from Oranga Tamariki for the child.

How much you can get

The Child Disability Allowance is $49.83 a week for each child who qualifies. This is a set amount and doesn’t depend on your income, assets or costs. This allowance is paid into your bank account every 2 weeks and is paid separately from any other assistance you may get.

In most cases, it won’t affect any other assistance you may get from us.

Childcare Subsidy

Childcare Subsidy is a payment that helps families with the cost of pre-school childcare.

Who can get it

You may get a Childcare Subsidy if:

  • you’re the main carer of a dependent child
  • you’re a New Zealand citizen or permanent resident
  • your family is on a low or middle income.

You should also normally live in New Zealand and intend to stay here.

It also depends on how much you and your partner earn.

The child must be:

  • aged either:
    • under 5, or
    • over 5 if they’re going to a cohort entry school (where new entrants start together on a set date after they turn 5), or
    • under 6 if you get a Child Disability Allowance for them
  • attending an approved early childhood programme for 3 or more hours a week.

Approved programmes include early childhood education and care services, eg:

  • kindergartens and preschools
  • childcare centres and creches
  • playcentres and playgroups
  • Kohanga Reo, Punanga Reo, Aoga and other programmes with a language and culture focus
  • approved home-based care.

Check what you might get

Hours paid for

A Childcare Subsidy is normally paid for up to 9 hours of childcare a week if you’re not working, studying or training.

You may be able to get up to 50 hours a week if you’re in one of these situations:

  • working, studying or on an approved training course
  • involved in an activity that Work and Income has asked you to do
  • a shift worker who works nights
  • seriously ill or disabled
  • caring for a child in hospital or for a child you get the Disability Allowance for.

In most cases you can’t get the Childcare Subsidy for more than 9 hours a week if the child’s other parent or caregiver can care for them.

Families getting 20 hours Early Childhood Education (ECE) can’t get the Childcare Subsidy for the same hours.

How much you can get

How much you get depends on:

  • the size of your family
  • your income
  • how many hours a week your child goes to the childcare provider.

Childcare assistance starts from the date the care starts (or from the date you apply if you apply after it starts). All subsidies are paid directly to the childcare provider.

View our current rates

How to apply

We suggest you apply at least 3 to 4 weeks before you need your subsidy to start.

We can grant you the financial assistance you’re entitled to from the date you first contact us, or the date your childcare started, whichever is later, if you complete your application within 20 working days of that date.

If you’re a Youth Service client, you need to talk to your Youth Service provider.

Apply for Childcare Subsidy only

  • You and your partner (if you have one) need to complete the Childcare Assistance application form.
  • Your childcare provider also needs to complete the supervisor’s section inside this form.
  • You’ll need to email the application form, and any other documents we’ve asked you to get to [email protected] or you can ask your childcare provider to send this to us on your behalf.

The online application process

Once you’ve applied online, we’ll tell you what you need to do. This will include having to get your childcare provider to complete the supervisor’s section of the Childcare Assistance application form

Reviews and changes

Childcare assistance is reviewed regularly. It also usually stops or is reviewed:

  • the day after your job or course ends
  • after 12 weeks if you stop work because you have a health condition or are injured
  • when your child reaches the age limit for the subsidy
  • when your child leaves the pre-school facility or Out of School Care and Recreation (OSCAR) programme
  • if the child leaves your care.

You must also tell us straight away about any changes in your circumstances that could affect your payments, eg:

  • if you or your partner’s income changes
  • if your child stops going or moves to another early childhood programme or OSCAR programme
  • if there’s a change in your child’s attendance
  • if the number of hours you (or your partner) work or study each week changes
  • if the reason why you get a subsidy changes, eg your health improves or your child leaves hospital
  • your child starts or stops receiving 20 Hours ECE.

Community Services Card

The Community Services Card can help you and your family with the costs of health care. Always carry your card to make it easy to get the benefits, like paying less on some health services and prescriptions.

Information

  • You don’t have to be on a benefit to qualify for the card.
  • You can also use the card for your dependent children under 18.

We administer the Community Services Card on behalf of the Ministry of Health.

Close allsections

You may get the Community Services Card if you:

  • are 16 or over
  • are not a dependent child
  • either:
    • are a New Zealand citizen
    • are a permanent resident, or
    • have, or have applied for, refugee or protection status

You may also be able to get it if you either:

  • are 16 or 17 and studying full-time at a University or polytechnic, or
  • get paid from Veteran’s Affairs either a:
    • Scheme 1 Weekly Income Compensation, or
    • Scheme 2 Weekly Compensation.

It also depends on how much income you and your partner get.

By income, we mean any money, goods and services you or your partner get from any source, such as:

  • interest or dividends from investments
  • income from a business or a family trust maintenance payments from child support

Get a private pension

If you also get New Zealand Superannuation, only half of your private pension may count as income.

If you don’t get New Zealand Superannuation, the whole amount of your private pension will be counted as income.

What you can use it for

The Community Services Card can reduce the cost of:

  • visits to a health practitioner, eg, a doctor, if you’re enrolled at their practice (for yourself, and your dependent children aged 14-17)
  • ACC visits to a general practice (eg. a doctor or nurse) if you are injured. You don’t need to be enrolled at the practice
  • prescription fees
  • fees for after-hours health practitioner visits
  • glasses for children under 16
  • emergency dental care provided by:
    • hospitals, and
    • approved dental contractors (ask the dental provider if they are an approved contractor)
  • travel and accommodation for treatment at a public hospital you’ve been referred to outside your area:
    • at least 80km away for adults
    • at least 25km for children
  • home help.

Prescriptions

Many prescription items are subsidised by the government. If you have a Community Services Card, you’ll pay a small fee. For children under 14, the prescription items are free.

Sometimes there are part-charges or other pharmacy fees you still need to pay.

Health practitioner visits for children under 14

The Community Services Card won’t cover the cost of children under 14 visiting a health practitioner, eg, a doctor, with their enrolled general practice. This is because most visits for children under 14 are already free. If your health practitioner has an extra charge, you will have to pay it.

  • Jobseeker Support

You can get a prescription subsidy if you and your family have collected 20 subsidised prescription items in a year. The year starts on 1 February. Once you’ve collected 20, any other subsidised prescriptions are free for the rest of that year.

You will still need to pay a small fee for a prescription from a private clinician, such as a specialist or optometrist. If you have a High Use Health Card as well as a prescription subsidy, a fee won’t be charged.

Talk to a health practitioner, eg, your pharmacist, about a prescription subsidy. You must have kept a record of the prescriptions you’ve gotten. They may keep a record for you.

The Disability Allowance is usually paid straight into your bank account with your main benefit or pension (or weekly if you don’t get any other assistance).

The Disability Allowance can help pay for a number of things - as long as your health practitioner tells us you need them because of your disability. Here are some of the things we may be able to help with, and the sorts of proof we need to see - so keep all your receipts.

Some of the extra costs we may be able to help with… We’ll need to see…
Doctor’s, specialist’s and hospital fees that aren’t already subsidised Receipts or invoices showing the date, cost and reason for your visit
Prescription fees Receipts or print-outs from your chemist showing the date, cost, the item you received and whether it’s subsidised
Travel to your doctor, specialist, hospital or counsellor Tickets or receipts showing the date, cost and how you travelled (if you travelled in your own car, we need to know the cc rating of your car and how far you travelled)
Heating Your summer and winter electricity bills
Medical alarm rental and monitoring The Disability Allowance - Medical Assessment for Medical Alarm form completed by a health practitioner, and the contract or receipt for the installation/rental of the medical alarm.

Flexi-wage – job seeker information

If you need support or training to get the skills you need for a job, we may be able to help.

Flexi-wage now provides more support for New Zealanders seeking work, including people who aren’t on a benefit. You can read about the changes (effective from 15 February 2021) in our news section.

If you are out-of-work and wanting to start your own business but needing some support, we may be able to help with Flexi-wage Self-employment.

What’s Flexi-wage

Flexi-wage is an employment programme that helps job seekers get the skills they need to meet the requirements of a job.

Flexi-wage support can include training and in-work support (such as pastoral care) as well as a contribution to wages. The job must continue after the Flexi-wage has finished.

Who can get it

You may be able to get Flexi-wage if you’re:

  • at risk of long-term unemployment, including if you’re on a benefit

and/or

  • disadvantaged in the labour market. You don’t need to be on a benefit.

Disadvantaged in the labour market means you have, or are expected to have, difficulty in getting or keeping a job. For example, you might have barriers to employment such as a lack of education and training, or you are at risk of losing your job.

Flexi-wage can help you get the required skills you need to move into a job, which might be:

  • with an employer who wants to hire you, or
  • with an employer you’re already working for who wants to move you into a different role that requires further training and more hours rather than making you redundant from your current role.

The employer also needs to meet the ‘Who can get it’ criteria outlined in Flexi-wage - employer information

The job must:

  • pay at least the minimum wage
  • have the minimum number of hours to meet any work obligations

and be:

  • ongoing, continuing after any Flexi-wage subsidy has finished, or
  • a project in the community that will help you get into work once it’s finished.

What you can get

We may be able to support you with training or in-work support (such as pastoral care), and by paying your employer a contribution to your wages until you have the skills you need to do the job.

We’ll talk to your employer about what help you may need and how we can help them pay for it.

How to find out more

If you’re already talking to us about your employment needs, ask about Flexi-wage.

If you’re not already talking to us about finding work and you don’t have an MSD client number, fill out the form below. If you select “I want help finding work” we’ll get in touch with you to talk about our employment services, which include Flexi-wage.

By getting a client number, you’re not necessarily applying for financial assistance but you can do that as well if you need to.

  • interested in starting a new business, or
  • in the early stages of developing a business and you’re not able to be self-sufficient.

  • talk with you about:
    • how to create a business plan, or offer support if you don’t already have one
