So what does this mean exactly?

And once work stops, how do you go about getting the mortgage and other bill payments stopped?

Thats kind of why it's a last resort, even just closing schools is going to put huge pressure on house holds, who is going to look after the kids if both parents need to work to pay mortgages etc?

Even child care services etc are closed, one parent stay's home to look after kids other goes to work, but they might not have enough money to pay all the bills etc

This is going to be huge, business big and small will go under, people will loose jobs, loose houses, plus possibly lose the odd friend or family member.

Shit most likely has only just started.

Luckily my missus works in a sector that wont be affected and luckily i work for myself and have flexibility and even if loose some work have low morage payments etc.

But heaps of people aren't going to be so lucky.

Good question(s) goofy!

What exactly are non-essential services? Apparently we will find out more tomorrow.

Not sure that the mortgage and other bills can be stopped by us individuals. That sort of help is going to have to come from the guvmint. Or the banks. Or both.

Re Mortgages:

A CBA spokesperson said:

All of our home loan customers will be able to pause their repayments for up to six months should they need to.

Westpac said:

Westpac customers who have lost their job or suffered loss of income as a result of COVID-19 should contact us for three months deferral on their home loan mortgage repayments, with extension for a further three months available after review.

The NAB wrote:

[Customers can] Pause home loan repayments for up to six months, including a three-month checkpoint.

And the ANZ noted:

[Customers can] Request a deferral of home loan repayments for up to six months, with a review at three months, with interest capitalised[2].

BUT which means "That's a very complicated way of saying, "after you're done with your mortgage 'holiday', as some are calling it, you'll have to keep up your repayments, and your balance will be bigger than when you started the deferral process".

If they don’t get told specifically from the government that they can’t work of course they will continue to work.
Otherwise they don’t have an income and not everyone has the capacity to live off what they have already.

Im at work (carpenter) and have had a delivery already from local hardware - business as usual.

I’ll happily stop working if when im told specially if/when bills/rent/mortgages are frozen.

Im sub-contractor or self-employed, at what point do i become technically unemployed?

Making a new claim is pretty much impossible. At the end of the process you need to book a phone appointment. There are no dates or times available and it keeps spinning to nowhere. Mygov is crashing and you can't get through on the phone. This will force everyone to turn up at Centrelink offices...

The site asked if I was registered for Centrelink. I clicked no.

Then it asked me to type in my Centrelink registration number.

You’d be homicidal if you’d just got the arse from work.

blowin, well done for being all over this from early on. you were right and scomo is a fucking idiot. anyone see him interviewed on channel 2 last night, the interviewer (youngish guy with white hair) made him look a fool with gentle questions. I had him in the disappointing basket (with Gillard and Turnbull)) but have shuffled him into fuckwits (with Rudd and abbott)
