Incolink COVID-19 Payments.
You can also have confidence that if your site closes or you need to isolate due to COVID-19, the Incolink COVID-19 payment available.
This assists in keeping you connected to your employer in the event of a site closure.
Eligible Incolink worker members will be able to access Incolink COVID-19 Payments from their account of $2,000 or the balance of your account (whichever amount is lower).
Reminder: We have scheduled maintenance for Saturday 29 May which may result in downtime for the Incolink App, WorkerLink and EmployerLink. If you need to access your account or make a claim, we recommend doing this either before or after this Saturday. Note: Claims made on weekends are processed the following business day. We apologise for any inconvenience.
Workers can continue accessing these payments every 28 days after the initial payment is made as long as you continue to meet the eligibility criteria and funds remain in your Incolink account.
Visit our Help Centre for all the details and the eligibility criteria.
Stay safe, we have your back.
