Uniform costs: help is available

Issue: Volume 96, Number 1

Posted: 30 January 2017
Reference #: 1H9d5q

The Ministry of Social Development’s clients can now use MyMSD to apply online quickly and easily for help with school uniform and stationery costs, so they don’t need to visit their Work and Income office. Please share this information with your school community.

Applicants can upload verification of the cost, usually a quote from the supplier. If the cost is approved, they will receive notification by text or by email. The amount will be loaded to their payment card or paid direct to registered suppliers who can’t receive payment cards. The applicant will need to pay back the money over time, using a repayment plan arranged with MSD.

Many of the approved application payments are made directly to schools.

General information for suppliers is available on the MSD website(external link)
