Can you still get Job Keeper if you receive the Carers Pension?

Now this question has come into debate recently. There is a link here stating you cannot obtain both.

The Job keeper payment will affect the amount of money you receive for the Carers Pension. If you do however submit for Job keeper, your Carer payment will either stop or be reduced. Once you do not receive the Job Keeper payment. Once the Job keeper payments stops, you can then reapply for your Carers Payment again. Therefore, after this 12-week period, you will need to reapply again from scratch for the Carers Pension.

So, the answer is NO. It is always wise to review the ATO website and also speak to your Bookkeeper in regards to what you can and can’t receive. This easy read fact sheet, states plainly very clearly what you can and can’t do.
