FEG Recovery Program

A program designed to strengthen recovery activity of amounts advanced under the Fair Entitlement Guarantee (FEG) scheme.

On 19 December 2016, the Commonwealth Government announced that the pilot Fair Entitlements Guarantee Recovery (FEG) Program has been made permanent with expanded funding from 1 January 2017. The ongoing program will continue to strengthen recovery of amounts advanced under the FEG scheme.

Under the ongoing program, liquidators of companies and trustees in bankruptcy where FEG advances have been made can continue to apply for funding for the purposes of pursuing recovery proceedings including litigation, and other activities, to increase assets available to creditors in the winding up or bankruptcy process.

For more information contact the FEG Hotline on 1300 135 040 (9am–5pm Monday to Friday AEST excluding ACT and national public holidays) or email FEG Recovery at FEGRecoveryapplications@employment.gov.au.
