The Restart programme is an Australian Government wage subsidy that encourages businesses to employ mature workers.

The Restart programme is an Australian Government wage subsidy that encourages businesses to employ mature workers.

Restart can help employers to expand their business and employ workers who are aged 50 or older.

The Restart wage subsidy is a payment of up to $10,000 (GST inclusive) if you employ eligible mature age job seekers for 12 months or more.

Up to $6,500 (GST inclusive) is payable if the employment is for at least 30 hours per week, over 12 months. A bonus of up to $3,500 (GST inclusive) will be paid for employment which lasts the full 12 months, making it a total of up to $10,000 (GST inclusive).

You will receive a pro-rata wage subsidy starting from $3,250 (GST inclusive) if you employ an eligible mature age worker for 15–29 hours per week.

If you employ 10 or more mature age workers you can bundle the Restart Wage Subsidy Agreements and negotiate with your employment services provider to receive a portion of the wage subsidy as a lump sum payment, to help cover the upfront costs of hiring multiple employees.

How do I apply?

To apply for a wage subsidy, contact a local jobactive or Disability Employment Services or Community Development Programme provider. You can find your local provider by calling the Employer Hotline on 13 17 15 or through the provider search on the jobactive website.

To ensure you do not miss out on the wage subsidy, you should contact an employment services provider within 28 days of employing the job seeker to complete the application process for the wage subsidy.

Note that call charges apply for calls to ‘13’ numbers from mobile phones.
