Centrelink, such a dreaded word for many of us and for a twenty something gal who has never dealt with any sort of government scheme before in her life. This was nightmare.
Are you in the same boat? If so, follow along.
After numerous hours spent on the phone and website, I have now realised that it does not have to be such a nightmare AND I’ve done a little of the hard work for you.
If you have recently been stood down and Job Keeper does not apply for you however you meet the requirements for Job Seeker (everyone’s eligibility is different ensure you meet the criteria) then it is time to face the music and get on the website. You are only hurting yourself in the long run.
Navigating the whole Centrelink and MyGov website can seem tricky and tiring however majority of the questions are straight forward, easy and simple to answer. It does take a little hard work, dedication and time but once approved (once again if you meet the criteria) it is all worth it in the end.
