A new policy under which some young beneficiaries will receive a payment card and have some bills paid directly on their behalf, comes into effect on 20 August.
Essential bills will be paid directly from their benefit and they will receive $50 per week in their account.
Labour says many young people don't know about the payment card.
Work & Income says no individual will be transferred to the new regime until they have had the changes explained to them.
