Which Departments will be affected?

Will "Maintenace Crew Fix".....?????.....Hank U R admitting C/Link ,My Gov R having problems !!!!.....don't work........I wonder if they will find lost paper work......

Maybe you could properly fix your corrupt polices while you're at it

"During this time services will be unavailable." So no change then.

Whoever wrote this post was having a bad day. Also I'm sure most school leavers are employed in some capacity already and have written a resume before guys.

What's next after highshool is: accepting knock back after knock back of countless job applications because SA has the worst job market of the lot, and living off of centrelink (which is barely enough to get by)

Also wanting to know when it is being reset. As my daughter has used up her funding

While it's a great scheme it would be nice to have the flexibility to utilise it towards braces etc.

My sons on the waiting list has been for 2 years. And when he gets called up i still got to find $3000 for braces

That's what I was thinking ☝️

Family Update

There's more than one way families can receive their Family Tax Benefit (FTB). These choices help people avoid being paid too much throughout the year and they can be updated at any time.

If you get family payments, having an accurate income estimate is important. If you're pretty sure you can estimate your income accurately, you may choose to receive all of your FTB as a fortnightly payment.

If you're not so confident about your estimate you can choose to wait until the end of the financial year to receive your FTB. You can also opt to receive only the base rate of your FTB Part A fortnightly and the rest once your payments are balanced.

You can make or change your payment choice online, via our Express Plus App and now by using telephone self service.

Some days it seems like your kids speak a different language. Talk like a Pirate Day is one opportunity to engage them in a fun way, but on their level.

You could start with a classic 'Why are pirates so scary? They just ARGHH!!' and then perhaps try using some of their lingo with 'Yo-Ho-YOLO' or even a 'Shiver-me-Justin-Timbers-lake'.
Your kids, particularly any teens, will of course be mortified and back away, careful not to make eye contact.

The Raising Children Network have another option, an interactive video guide on talking to teens. You can pick which approach to take and see where it leads, sort of like the old 'Choose Your Own Adventure' books.

Another reference your kids might not get, but it may help you get on the same page. More here: raisingchildren.net.au/talking_to_teens/talking_to_teens_landing.html

Why was it parked at the end of my street all day being cleaned?

Leechelle Greenfield.... coming to Cunderdin

We go in to centrelink and they won't assist us, they just direct us to their computers and say do it on-line when we haven't a clue what or how to do anything but they bend over backwards to assist "non english" speaking people . Thanks 😡
