DH and I are both going to be stood down, probably Friday.

I am so confused and I cant seem to understand anything of what we are to do here.

I believe we will both get a certificate from our employees stating stand down and that we will be required back when allowed.

Do we need a separation certificate to obtain Jobseeker payment?  That technically means we quit doesn't it, which is a contradiction to just standing down??

Does DH need to have his own MyGov to apply? Or can I do it through my MyGov?

Do we also get Family Tax Benifits given we are both technically unemployed or just the Jobseeker payment??

Any help please  :(

Your dh will need his own myGov. I'm not sure about the separation certificate, maybe have a look at the application and see if there's a covid 19 related option. Ftb is based on yearly income so if this period significantly reduces your yearly income you may be eligible. Good luck, hope you guys are ok x

Dh will definitely need his own account.  It seems the gov is waiving the normal separation certificate, and asset test too.

Can I ask a further question please. The website says that there’s an assets test. It’s $394,500 Does this include the family home? In Sydney, if you owned anything, you’d be over it.

No, it doesn't include the family home if you live in it.

Your personal home isn't included https://www.services...cs/assets/30621

I thought the asset test was being waived though?

separation certs are for redundancies only. I'm sure an official letter will do. some people will do the maths and find it might be better to actually get their employer to terminate them and re-hire later, so they will be free to get another job without affecting payments.

Separation Certificates are not for redundancies only

Great - thank you all...

Another issue - MyGov is now not letting me have two separate accounts on the same computer...  
I set up DH last night, put all his details in but now it won't let me log in again because says account details are wrong.

This is killing me!!  Aggghhhghhgg

Can you try going into internet options and clearing all history/cookies etc and try logging in as you again?

My DP and I use different web browsers for MyGov.  I use Chrome and he uses Firefox or something.
