Our definition of stand-down for Jobseeker Support Student Hardship.
The Jobseeker Support Student Hardship is subject to a stand down under the Social Security Act 2018.

Partner or child
If you have a partner or a child and you're in hardship because your Student Allowance has stopped and you're waiting for the Jobseeker Support Student Hardship to start, you may be able to get a Student Allowance Transfer Grant.
