Have you done the required 2 years residence in Australia to qualify for any benefits?

Is your partner working?

New Residents need to have enough to cover the first two years.

Yeah he is working but nothing is mentioned about this two years residency condition on Centrelink website.
Have a look at the Centrelink/Human Services link in my last post.

Also, even if you are over 24 months as Permanent Resident, your partners income is taken into account to work out how much they would pay.

You can always ask, and Centrelink will check your income and assets and determine if you are eligible, after the 104 weeks is up.
