CEOs will apply for it.

While the government may have dropped the ball on the aged care retention bonus payment we're keeping an eye out for members' interests, so we contacted CEOs of aged care facilities and within 24 hours they confirmed that yes, they will be applying for it.

All except CEO Robyn Boyd from Southern Cross Care, and we’ve since heard rumours they're considering not paying it because they think it's too much paperwork - we hope these are just rumours but it's a real worry.

We'll continue to lobby the government to extend eligibility but all eligible employees that meet the government’s definition should be getting the first payment come July with a second payment in September.
