Changes to Farm Household Allowance

On Wednesday 1st August 2018, changes to the Farm Household Allowance (FHA) will come into effect, meaning eligible farmers can now receive FHA for a total of four years.

For those currently receiving FHA, you don’t have to do anything to receive the additional year.

For those who have already (or will) used their 1095 days by 1st August or exited the program, another year is available but you will need to lodge a new claim. Applications open 1st August through the Department of Human Services.

Our Rural Financial Counsellors are experts in the application process. We can check your eligibility, visit you on the farm to gather all the information, draw up the required budgets and submit the application online with you.

We are available now to see existing and new clients for all FHA enquiries and applications.
