SIMMERLINK CAREER (centrelink / welfare)

15th of august 2021: updated for patch

there’s a typo in some of the pics, it’s fixed in the mod but i’m too lazy to take new screenshots 

there's other welfare mods out there but i wanted to make one to better reflect the reality of being on welfare; as someone who has been on and off it my whole life, I didn't find the other welfare mods out there accurate to me and my family's experience 

  • to apply for payments, you can apply for a job as normal, but there is also a new option under the "work" category of the phone to apply immediately. For toddlers, you have to click on them since they don't have phones
  • 2 hours before 12pm on Saturday for toddlers, children, teens, and elders, and Monday for young adults and adults; you will see the option to "receive payment", which automatically makes you take a vacation day (you start with 99 of them). You can also take a vacation day on the phone. The payment comes at 1pm. The third option is to go into the rabbithole at 12pm, I do not recommend this because they lose money for every minute late.
  • you can withdraw at anytime by clicking the interaction on your toddler or by quitting through the phone

CHILD SUPPORT

  • $100 per child per week. toddlers-teens
  • if you use MCCC quit school option, your sims will have to choose between this or school. to get both at the same time, you'll need to disable quitting school

UNEMPLOYMENT BENEFIT

  • $400 per week for young adults and adults
  • full time career, meaning you won't be able to hold another job

AGED PENSION

  • $500 per week for elders only
  • part time, meaning you can hold another part time career but not full time
