The federal government has taken its first step towards overhauling the myGov online services portal, rolling out a refreshed website ahead of the launch of a new app later this year.
The new website, which is still at my.gov.au, has a new visual design with a modern logo and a blue colour scheme (replacing the green), but it also features a new navigational layout.
Government services minister Bill Shorten said the changes were designed to put inbox messages and linked services up front, with information on claims and payments organised according to particular life events.

“The initial topics include raising kids, changes in living arrangements, ageing, work, education and health and disability, with more topics and information to be added soon,” he said.
