Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs):  

Can I choose to ‘bank’ my relief payment or add it to my flexible program balance?  

We have taken your preference that you sent to us for the Christmas program in December and applied it to your relief payment. If you would like to change this, please let us know by emailing: 

Are Gumala Members going to receive a program top-up this year?  

Each year, a program top-up is not guaranteed. This type of program is dependent on how much money is generated from the Mine. At this stage, in 2024 we are not planning to have a program top-up.  

Can I expect more relief payments?  

The next and final relief payment will be April 2024.
