Why claim your Medicare benefit when you can get your doctor to do it for you?
The simplest and fastest way to claim your Medicare benefit is at your doctor's practice. 98% of Medicare claims are lodged this way, and your benefit is usually paid within 24 to 48 hours. If you haven't already, you will need to register your bank account details through your Medicare online account.
If your doctor doesn't offer this, ask them why! In the meantime, you can claim using the Express Plus Medicare mobile app or through your Medicare online account instead.
Is there any way of receiving youth allowance earlier if my mum hasn’t had her notice of assessment sent back from the ATO yet? Been waiting a while and getting desperate. Cannot get through to anyone on phone either.
Hi, I am trying to advise our parental income for our son as per the letter he recently received. Every time I go to report it as per the following link it says service not available at this time, this has been happening over the last 3 days
We go overseas for a month on Thursday and the cut off for advising is 12th October
is there any reason the service isn't working? I am unable to do it through my own mygov account
If my son has worked 40 hours per week over a 12 month period and prior to that 5 hours per week for 12months in a restaurant
Does this equate to 30 hours in 18 month period
My son turns 8 soon,is there any change to family payment.
Wanting to know before making a phone call... when is the best time to tell centrelink I am expecting?
How long can I expect to wait for my husbands Dad & Partner pay to go through, as well as a change in our family tax benefit? Our daughter was born 9 weeks ago, all paperwork filed 3 months before her due date and newborn declaration uploaded a few days after her birth in full. I thought the payment was there to tie you over whilst you are out of work for those two weeks? I’ve made numerous calls and nobody has been any help in telling me how long this is going to take to finally go through.
Does your child get Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY as a dependant? We may send them a letter this month asking for your income details.
If we do, make sure you give us this info by the date in their letter so your child keeps their payment. The easiest way to give us your income details is online. You need to do this for every child who gets a letter.
You won't need to give us your income details if you got Family Tax Benefit in 2017-18 and you receive a Notice of Assessment from the Australian Taxation Office before the date in their letter.
If you were receiving child care payments before 2 July and haven't done your Child Care Subsidy assessment yet, do it by 23 September. Otherwise, you'll miss out on any Child Care Subsidy you were eligible for from 2 July 2018.
Sign into your Centrelink online account through myGov to complete your Child Care Subsidy assessment task before it's too late.

Rent Assistance is a regular extra payment to help if you pay rent. It's based on how much rent you pay, so it's important to keep Centrelink updated about any changes.
We've made it easy for you to let us know online about a range of changes, including if you've moved house or changed the amount of rent you pay. Let us know to avoid being underpaid or overpaid and getting a debt.
This is unfair to people you are buying their home they should get this help also
Doesn't frigging work. We had ours taken off us after doing it online and then going into the office with relevant documents. After a phone call and an hour on the phone, and being told it would be rectified within a couple of days, two weeks later nothing done so hence another trip to our Centrelink office to re submit our documents it has now been rectified.
I'd rather bash my head against a brick wall than try to get somewhere with Social Services on this subject. The whole system is set up to confuse, to the degree that nobody (including most of the employees) have no idea of how things work. Even applying for and being granted a pension these days is so complicated that the average person can't cope with it. What annoys me is that most people are already in the system, due to having paid tax for many decades, are covered by Medicare - so all the relevant details are already on record.
But can't get it if you live overseas & still receive Old Age Pension !!!!!!
It took 2 months to sort out my rental assistance after moving, doing it online was what caused the problem in the first place and then someone who should have mailed me a rent certificate to be filled out and returned to Centrelink, sent it to a previous address in Queensland even though my current Western Australian address was on my file. Fortunately my overpayments caused by this stuff up only came to around $200.
In SA a few years back the State Government deceided that rent assistance be deamed as income for community housing so we now pay more rent. I believe this was the only state to do this.
