WINZ BENEFITS — All WINZ offices are closed.

If you need a Benefit, please call 0800 559 009 to register
Keep hanging on and if you get cut off, call them again. They WILL eventually answer.

If you’re already getting the Benefit, don’t worry, you’ll still receive your regular benefit payments.

If you’re already getting Jobseeker Support, Sole Parent Support or Support Living Payment, you don’t need to provide another medical certificate at this stage.


If you’re already getting Disability Allowance or Child Disability Allowance, you don’t need to do anything – you’ll still get paid.

Special Benefits won’t expire during the lockdown period.

You can’t and don’t need to visit WINZ for any obligatory check-ins.
