Summary: If you have been granted a Temporary Protection Visa (TPV) or a Safe Haven Enterprise Visa (SHEV), you will no longer be able to receive the Status Resolution Support Services payment. However, you may be able to claim Special Benefit if you are in financial hardship. You will be eligible for Special Benefit if you (and your partner) have less than $5000 in liquid funds and are not earning enough income to support yourself and your family. If you have a child or children, you can also claim family payments.
