Centrelink provides your income support payments while enrolled in the Workforce Australia programme. TURSA is contracted by the Department of Employment and Workplace Relations as an employment services provider. Our role is to assist you in preparing and looking for work during this time.
Mutual obligation requirements are what you’ll have to do as a condition for receiving an income support payment. These obligations will be set out in your Job Plan, and your TURSA Employment Adviser will provide you with the support and resources to help you meet them. The requirements can include:
Your requirements and job searching activities will be outlined in your Job Plan, which you’ll create with your TURSA Employment Adviser during your initial meeting. Your TURSA Employment Adviser will explain what you’ll need to do. You’ll be able to provide input to ensure your Job Plan also suits your individual needs.
Each month Centrelink requires you to report on your job searching activity. This is done via the MyGov website. Your plan will advise your due dates for lodgement, and your Employment Adviser will step you through the process.
If you can’t make an appointment or activity, please let us know as soon as possible so we can reschedule this for you and ensure there’s no delay in your income support payments.
Workforce Australia is the new way for job seekers to access the government’s employment services. Workforce Australia Services, delivered by Tursa Employment and Training, provides you with an enhanced service to overcome barriers to finding a job and to be work-ready.
In order to keep receiving income support payments from Centrelink, you need to meet your mutual obligation requirements while you search for work. From 4 July, 2022, your mutual obligations will be part of the new Workforce Australia Points Based Activation System (PBAS). This system aims to give you more choice in the tasks and activities you carry out as part of your mutual obligation requirements.
Please speak to your TURSA employment Adviser if you have any questions about your points total or the activities in your Job Plan.
You’ll earn a certain number of points by completing tasks and activities in a reporting period.
These can include:
Meeting your points total
Your TURSA employment adviser will discuss the number of points you need to earn for each reporting period.
They will also discuss with you how to earn and how to report them.
Every participant’s points total will depend on the support they receive and their circumstances, so you may have a different number of points to earn than other Workforce Australia participants.
Please remember, your income payments can be impacted if you don’t reach your number of points during the reporting period.
If you have any problems meeting your points total, speak to your TURSA Employment Adviser as soon as possible.
Your friends or family will thank you later.
