Just a reminder if you have kids that are waiting on you to provide your income details.It's not too late! If your payment has stopped because your parents or guardians haven't given us their income details, they can still do it online now.
Let them know they can provide their details here: www.centrelink.gov.au/custsite_api/api/adviseParentalIncomePage.jsf?wec-appid=api&wec-locale=en_US
If your parents have lost their One Time Access Code, they can still provide their details by selecting 'No' when asked if they have this code.

Guys I need help!! So I applied for youth allowance jobseeker, however they still haven’t accepted it and it’s been months. I called they said it takes time. So I haven’t received any of the payments. If I transfer to to just youth allowance, because I’m going to uni would my payments go ?

Jacob Pugh

Hey guys!!! I'm trying to claim fares allowance but I'm a bit confused, do I just upload the documents to my centrelink online account and y'all automatically sort it out, or do I have to call/make an appointment to let you know i'm trying to claim it?

Is there any financial support available for families struggling with school fees, uniforms, books etc? Now that the Schoolkids bonus is gone, I can imagine there must be so many families finding it really hard to afford the essentials.

Fortnightly payments can cover it. Plan ahead and budget. If you can’t afford certain schools maybe it’s time to live within your means.... not trying to be harsh but it’s reality.

I will have a yr 7,8 and 11 this year. its tough but you do what needs to be done to give the kids the best education possible.

Do we need to let you know that our child will be finishing Childcare and starting school or is it an automatic thing?? We will still be using before school care and vacation care.

My youngest is starting school this year do I have to tell Centrelink?

Maybe the politicians should take out the money from their own pockets to help struggling families as they are the ones who scrap all the incentives that do help...school books, uniforms, outdoor activities..it all adds up and not everyone can afford it, so help us out, after all you are paid millions of dollars a yr and for what...cause none of you have any idea on how to run a country..

Got good advice but you take the bloody school bonus away from us pft

I have one starting high school it's like kindergarten all-over again😂

Bring back the school kids bonus

Hi. How long after uploading a copy of the newborn declaration online ( either through Centrelink express or myGov) will my child be register d in your system and on Medicare? I cannot find any information to provide a tim frame of when we can expect to see the change/ confirmed nor whether just uploading is successful

Could you please tell me if parenting payment gets balanced as well or is it just family tax a and b?

Hi i have a home online business and having another baby on 11 weeks How do i apply for paid parental leave?

Hi ! I am Aya. I plan to send my daughter to preschool this February. I would like to know that do I need to apply CCB before enrol? Thanks a million.

I'm 34 weeks pregnant I'm on a careers pension for my autistic 4 year old son do I need to do anything before hand or just take paperwork in when bubs is born thanks

Hi, my second baby is due in March and I have filled out my claim online for PPL. I am just wondering if it is income based? As I was working full time the first time I claimed it in 2014, but am only part time now so will that effect the payment. Thanks heaps 🙂

How long is the wait between adding your newborn into your account & when Payments start for bub?

I have applied before the birth of my baby , and my application for PPL was approved pending proof of birth, which I have now provided all online , how long should I wait before receiving payment of PPL ( self employed) ?

I have a baby due in coupke of weeks do i need to make a new claim for anything i thought baby just got added to my fam tax benefit once handed hosp forms in to centrelink

Do we still get school kids bonus?

Im still waiting. I recieved a letter requesting more information which ive done then rang to confirm they had recieved it. Lady on the phone informed me it would be looked at straight away. Still nothing.

Why would anyone want to when it results in severe financial crisis ....

The questions are so wrong. Ss284 form for sharing a home with someone else... A lot is none of your business... A question about your relationship together is fair enough but eating sleeping going out together is none of your business

Y bother nothing gets done about it

Not everyone who lives with their partner receives financial support from them

It took them over 4 months to approve my newstart last year because they were waiting for living together assessment

What if you have multiple partners

If I'm single and don't have any kids (I live with my parents as you should know), do I have to fill out that single parent form?

Nothing to do with this but I sent in the paperwork regarding rent assistance at the beginning of this month. How long should it take before I'm notified that it's been approved?

You guys need to fix your disable pension requirements my mother is in her 50s has back problems and other major problems. All the doctors and physiotherapy people in our town are shocked that she does not qualify for disable pension. We have been told to go to several specialists in order to be qualified but this can not be achieved as the government does not understand there are people like us who struggle to make ends meet my dad has to work extra now due to her not qualifying and because of this she has lost her health care card making her medicine expensive which makes it even harder on us thank god there's a safety net arfter we hit $1200-1400 on medicine. Me and my brother are currently trying to find work to help our dad but its hard to come by due to unemployment beening high in rural areas so we have to try and help with our work for the dole payments. Even with me/ brother and my dad helping each other to help make ends meet its still not enough. Hopefully it changes soon as everything is going up and more money is needed to keep up with that change.😑😑

Know people who havent declared it, also know people claiming payments they shouldn't be....know there have been complaints put in from others but yet they are still receiving these payments! Sucks knowing they are getting financial gain from others hardwork!!

Can of worms has opened
