The ReStart package, which will be backdated until November 8, covers as many as 70,000 people losing their jobs. Beneficiaries will be low-income families and those who can't meet mortgage payments after being made redundant.
The package is designed to give some breathing space to families hit by redundancy, said Social Development Minister Paula Bennett.
The assistance includes $60 a week for families with up to three children who are no longer eligible for the In-Work tax credit and an extra $15 a week for each additional child.
A further payment of up to $100 a week is available to those who qualify for the maximum accommodation supplement. Payments are to start in the New Year and only apply to people made redundant, not those who left their jobs for other reasons.
