Can I just confirm this: would a working woman who has lost her job and is pregnant but who has a partner who is working full-time and earns $100,000 a year—and they have a very large mortgage—be eligible for a jobseeker payment?
She's going to be assessed as dependent on her spouse and she won't meet the income test requirements to be eligible for a jobseeker payment, will she?
