Over the past few years, a number of different versions  of "income management" have been implemented across Australia.  While there are variations in these programs, essentially it involves quarantining part of a person's welfare payments. The federal government have produced a handy overview of these programs, titled "Income management: A quick guide."  It includes the full range of income management measures from voluntary through to compulsory, along with the various triggers for implementing income management.   The quick guide also includes links to evaluation reports, an overview of the "Basics Card" and information on future directions in income management.
