Sure will. I will be remembering them all, for their commitment & sacrifice, including my uncle, Ernest, who lost his young life in WW1.

I will remember them ❤️

Hi just wondering if you can stop child support payments

Does any one else have the problem with app update, you check to see if you need to report, it tells you that you have no tasks , then the following morning you get the Red letter You are late to report . I tested it , at 10 pm I didn’t need to report at 2 am I was late 😑 . That’s just causing unnecessary Stress. It’s also Bad programming

Student Update I'm about to finish my undergrad and intend to study postgrad next year. I've been receiving youth allowance while studying undergrad but have since turned 25 and will need to move to austudy for my next course. Am I still able to submit an intent to study, or will I need to submit a new claim for austudy?

There are some universal milestones we use to keep track of "growing up"

• Learning your first word
• Losing your first tooth
• Eating salad willingly
• Finishing high school

Many year 12 students will reach that last one soon (though the salad thing might be a work in progress for some...)

Another is getting your own Medicare card.

You can get your own card once you turn 15. So if you're still on mum & dads, make the switch today. All the "how to" information is here: www.humanservices.gov.au/individuals/services/medicare/medicare-card/enrol/how-get-your-own-medic...

I think I'd be having time off alright!! How the hell did he get pregnant!?

Why does it take so long to process even if you claim before the birth and provide the birth certificate once born? If you’re taking unpaid leave you’ll probably need the payment ASAP to cover your lost income, not weeks later.

Lashay Semple make sure you claim this!

Hayley Sharp sam will be able to get it

So if I have already take 18 weeks paid parental leave would my husband be eligible to take this 2 weeks?

Lisa Nguyen jimmi? Havent read the whole thing but may be able to apply even if Damien is born...at least more time at home w you! 🙂

AJ Persello you can apply now

Leah Biddle see if Anthony is eligible

Veronica Riley are you going to do this for Mike?

I just had my son on the 8th, im trying to put in the new baby claim online and its not working. I try click on my claim and it says complete this claim by may 2014... then when i go into it it says you are not authorised or something. Whats going on do you know?

How does it work for a sole trader that has a subcontractor working for them if the subcontractors does the work and we invoice the job?

How fare from aldi maroochy is centerlink to walk

I’ve been trying to call this morning regarding my daughter’s Medicare but to no avail. I spoke to Centrelink last Monday and they have processed my pre birth claim. My daughter is due for her 6 weeks immunisations tomorrow and would like to find out if she has been added to the system yet? Thank you for your assistance!

I have to get a dental referral on Monday and I have the choice of going to A. the 'Public Dentist' and paying $30 or B. a G.P and paying nothing. Since I'm on the DSP ad get SFA... Can you guess who I'm going to???

Seems to be working now thank you

Once upon a time if you wanted to learn something new, you needed to hit the books, or find someone who could teach you.

But these days, you can also go to YouTube and see how others are doing it. Cooking tutorials, gardening tips, learning an instrument, DIY fixes around the house - there are millions of videos on millions of topics available.

If you want to learn or try something new, chances are someone has made a YouTube video explaining how to do it.

Have a look at this guide on how you can get the most out of YouTube:

The time has come. No more denials! Helping someone choose the right hearing aid and provider is important, but it can be hard to know where to start.
