Re-apply for Jobseeker Support
If you still need the Jobseeker Support benefit after 52 weeks you have to re-apply. The easiest way to re-apply for Jobseeker Support is online.
You'll need to re-apply for the Jobseeker Support benefit using My Account. If you don't have one, it's easy to set one up.
If you can’t get a My Account, you won’t be able to reapply online. Please contact us
If you have a partner they also need to complete a re-application. Partners can apply in their own My Account if they have work obligations, otherwise they’ll need to contact us.
What you’ll need
You'll need details of:
- what you’ve done to look for work
- any income you’ve received from sources other than us, for example from ACC payments, dividends, overseas payments or child support.
What happens next
Once you’ve submitted your reapplication online, you’ll get a page that confirms your reapplication has been submitted successfully. It also tells you:
- your reapplication reference number
- what you need to do next, including booking an appointment
- what to bring to your appointment.
We’ll send you a confirmation email if you gave us your email address in the online form.
Book an appointment
If you have a partner, they can attend the same appointment with you. If this isn’t possible they can book their own appointment.
What to bring
You’ll be advised what you need to bring to your appointment on the ‘Next Steps’ page when you submit your online application.
Verification of your income
If you are currently working or have had any other income in the last 52 weeks, you’ll need to provide proof of your income. You can print an 'Employment and earnings' form and give to your previous or current employer to complete. Bring the completed form to your appointment with us.
