Hi, hope all are fine here. I am Dani. Me and my wife with 2 little kids arrived here on 28 of july 2018 on permanant resident visa (subclass189). Now my question is can we claim for centerlink payments, if yes then how many type of payments we can claim at that stage.

Thanks
Cheers

Old Rules:
New residents have to wait 104 weeks (2 Years) before they can get most of the Centrelink payments.

HOWEVER:

New Rules:
In the 2018-19 Budget, the Government announced that the Newly Arrived Residentís Waiting Period (NARWP) will be further extended. Pending the passage of legislation, the NARWP will be extended to four years for a number of welfare payments, including Newstart Allowance, Youth Allowance, Family Tax Benefit and the Paid Parental Leave Scheme.

This measure was announced to commence from 1 July 2018. However, it did not commence on this date as the legislation has not yet passed the Parliament. This measure remains current Government policy.

You need to ask at Centrelink to be certain of what is correct at the moment.

Do not bank on anything being available.

Hi mates,
I got my 801 visa on May 15, 2019.
For personal reasons, on September 23, 2019, I left my partner's house with my son.I went to centrelink and told me that unemployed benefit cannot take 4 years from the date of the 801 visa.Do I understand that the 5 years of temporary residence in Australia from 1 January 2019 does not matter?I am now with my son temporary in a friend's house and little money left.I'm 60 years old,and I wonder if at 67 I will retire...
Are there many people here in our situation?It is not correct that after 5 years of temporary residence and permanent resident for almost 6 months,
and be treated as one who has just come to Australia!My boy and I are about to become homeless in Australia!🤨🤔

It used to be 2 years after you received PR, the 801 visa in your case, before you could claim benefits, but that was increased to 4 years not that long ago.

Temporary residence does not count.

The aged pension has a 10 year residency requirement.

There maybe a benefit for the child, and of course there is child support from the other parent.

Does the residence for retirement need only permanent?

This outlines waiting periods. It's from the date you were granted your PR. If you leave the country, the time you are away does not count as australian residency. E.g.. go to UK for 2 months... Then you increase your wait by 2 months.

Look at special benefit.

If eligible, you will need to complete a review every 3 months. It's annoying but it's something.

Apply for family tax benefit, you will get part b without serving a waiting period... it does depend on taxable income.

Do I understand that the 5 years of temporary residence (820/801 visa) is not taken into account for those of 10 years of residence for retirement?🤔

Let's scrap famy tax benefit then.

I find the special benefit one confusing. Just apply and you will know for sure If you are eligible.
