This is a community designed to help people who are on any kind of payment from Centrelink, the Australian welfare and human services office. Stories about how rude the people were, which branches are the most useless, how they stuffed up your information for the fifth time are all welcome, but we're aiming to be more than a whingefest.
If you've found out something handy to know that Centrelink doesn't tell everyone- tell us! If you have a problem that Centrelink can't seem to help you figure out (or you don't feel comfortable asking them for fear of incrimination), ask us!
We're NOT here to help dodge the system or rip off the government, but if you're a part of the Centerlink universe, you'll no doubt have tales of woe/caution/advice that we can all enjoy.
