Family update , thank you very much for what you do.

I’ve lodged mine and my partners tax how long does it take for centrelink to know for me to receive my sups

Hi Family update, I have only just been able to access a letter in my mygov from 28/6/19 stating our CCS eligibility is now suddenly 0% I have been unable for the past two days to get through to speak to someone on the 136150 number to try and get some clarity about this decision. I have tried looking in the Centrelink App, website and my Mygov account but none are giving me any clues why it has changed when our situation has not. Do I need to go into Centrelink in person?

Hi their, I keep phoning about my family tax balancing and they said it’s been put through as urgent and I have my summary. Just wondering y it’s taking so long.

My Express App says that my Family Tax balancing is complete and I have a payment of supplements due today but I haven't had any letter to say what it is and what was balanced. How long will this take? Also Family Tax Part A is missing so unsure of when I should find out if I've been underpaid/overpaid throuhout the year.

While I'm super greatful at the quick response of balancing I'm concerned as my partner had to amend his tax return yesterday, so has centerlink gone off what the ato data says or have they just gone off an estimate? My partner did his tax return on Sunday I'm noticeably sure how the data has been uploaded so quick..

I’m quiet upset, year ago I had a debt to Centrelink which I pay off at a small cost each fortnight. Have been waiting to get our balance paid to pay for our daughters month long hospital stay next month, to only find out they have already balanced our ftb and have taken the lot to put off the debt, to say we’re devistated is an understatment,hospital stays arnt cheap and we’re reliant on this money to make life a little less stressful. Has this happened to anyone else? We make a concious effort to repay our debt all year and make sure we don’t under esstimate so we’re not over paid but yet we r punished 🤷🏻‍♀️😭🤦🏻‍♀️

Hi there, It turns out that our family tax benefits balanced before I have even received my Notice of Assessment/ Return payment from the ATO! I phoned centrelink last night to find out that they had balanced based on our ESTIMATE (which i grossly over estimated)! the person i spoke to was very helpful, but i am concerned that this is now going to overcomplicate the situation once mine ( and my partners) notice of assessments actually arrive at centrelink. I'm also mindful that this may affect our childcare subsidy balancing.

I’m having the opposite problem with the supplement. I’m pretty sure I’ve gotten to much back? Mine is showing FTB (A) supplement Family tax part A Family tax part B supplement Family tax part B Energy supplement part A Energy Supplement part B It’s the second one I’m worried about... the rest looks right, but that extra big amount I’ve not seen on any of my July supplements before? So have I somehow got an extra payment I’m not supposed to get!?

I put my tax in a week in a half ago and still waiting for my centrelink payment to be balanced I was told it would be done within 4 business days

I was going through the Centrelink site and was working out to see what payments we might be entitled to then it says claim I accidentally pushed claim instead of back will this hold up our payments, as I just entered a random amount in the income tax box

hi my last payment was on the 10th of July and according to the website I should receive it by tomorrow but in my app it is shown that it hasn't been processed I rang up and was told I have to wait even though I told them I should be receiving it by the 17th of July

Unsure if I need to lodge a return. My only source of income was family tax a&b as well as parenting payment partnered. Do I need to lodge a return? How do I find out how much I received, was I below the threshold ?

I have been advised I have a debt. Apparently mine was balanced prior to.lodging my tax return!!!

My last family tax benefit payment was today but my supplement isn’t showing up it still says it’s balancing when should I get my supplement ?

I used the online tool to see if I needed to lodge, it said I didn’t but I’m not sure if I answered the questions correctly. I know I don’t need to lodge for FTB but I received parenting payment, so do I need to lodge?

My partner got his tax back yesterday and I've placed a non lodgement. Still waiting for my payment too be balanced .....

Hi there, what happens with the childcare subsidy payments (the 5% that are kept by centre link) ? Are those processed at the same time as family tax benefits A and B or is this separate? Thank you.

Hi family update my express app says mine is complete but I haven't received a letter or know anything about what supplements I am or not entitled to

Mine hasn't been updated since the 8th and last ftb payment was on the 10th. It's saying i haven't had my last ftb payment for the year but i have??

My husband has received notification that his tax return is finalised. He spoke to the ATO today they have said they have already send everything through to Centrelink I’ve been told that it could take until November to balance payments! Why???? It’s a straightforward balancing we will be in severe financial hardship if it takes much longer I appreciate you guys are busy but I’ve been more thank patient. It would really be great if your staff actually tried to help instead of fobbing me off and telling me to “wait” I have important expenses that need paying ASAP. We work we should take priority.

Hi! How long does it usually take for get everything balanced once you guys have everything you need from us?

How long after a amended tax return will centrelink re balance my ftb? Balancing has complete but because I stuffed up my tax return my income doubled so I had to fix it up, so centrelink have issued me a debt, although once they re balance I won't have a debt as I over estimated by 12k. Will I get my supplements + whatever I've paid, as I thought I stuffed up and paid some of the debt already

Hi how long does it take to balnace once it goes to the manual team?

My balancing is still not complete I'm on DSP don't have to lodge a tax return and hubby's been paid his final families payment. Been trying trying and trying to ring again and line still busy. No wonder a person is mentally ill. Frustrating to say the least. So much for being automatically done.

Seniors Update

This year's theme for National Wound awareness week is 'Let's Talk About Wounds'.

This may not be the best ice-breaker at a dinner party, but a good reminder for people to start a conversation with their health professional.

People of all ages in Australia suffer from wounds. Most of the time wounds heal with simple first aid measures and a bit of self-care.

Chronic wounds are more likely to affect people over 65 or those with medical conditions like diabetes or cardiovascular disease.

Chronic wounds can be healed.

Know the warning signs - if a wound isn't healing, talk to your health care professional.
