Smile Hi

Hi everyone.. I'm Novella and I am a Certified Public Accountant here in the Philippines. My husband and I, are actually thinking of processing our papers for migration to Australia. I have 2 kids, a five year old kid and a one year old baby girl.

A lot of my friends are already in Australia. It's also my dream to live and work in Australia. However, honestly, I know a little about Australia especially on their laws and economy. Could you please help me guys to understand and give information about living and working in Australia? I am also interested on the information about the benefits given by the government to its citizens.

Thanks and looking forward for your replies guys.

Hi Novella,

What exactly do you mean about government benefits given to citizens? Do you mean in terms of access to Medicare, child care Etc?

Okay well citizens are all entitled to public health care which is "medicare". Medicare does not cover all costs however. E.g if you go to a doctor unless he "bulk bills" Medicare will only pay a part of your doctors bill. Most people pay about 1% of our tax towards Medicare however the more you earn the more you pay towards it.

At the moment depending on how high your salary is there is a 50% rebate for child care meaning the government subsidizes 50% of the costs.

I see. How about if only one of the parents has a work and they have 2 children, will the government give "allowances" for the children?

You don't get a small amount of money for the children from the government but its not a great deal. It all depends on how much you earn.

If one parent works and the other doesn't, generally they would expect the working parent to provide for the whole family.
