Basically, the Centrelink lady told me to find anyone, and specifically mentioned "friends, or church" among other potential assurers. I am looking at churches now...
Good luck.
Kva I really hope you'll be able to secure an AoS for your parents, best of luck

Thanks! It's such a bummer, really. But rules are rules. I decided that, if I must part with a large amount of money, I'll try and contact charities for children/cancer etc, rather than churches (I'm an atheist). Feeling like a fraud and shivering like a leaf right now.
If they don't respond, shall go to my local church and try there. I don't have many friends, and the ones I have, all have plans for their own parents at some stage.

The Centrelink lady told me, however, that assets and savings do NOT matter, the rule is that they look at the steady income, and she gave me numbers for the Income Test. I'm in shock and currently looking for anyone employed to be my joint assurer for two years after parents' arrival (I'll pay a few grand to the assurer, of course). So, the numbers are (printed at a Centrelink office two days ago):
Adults:
1 - 13,358.80
2 - 26,717.60
3 - 40,076.40
4 - 53,435.20
5 - 66,794

Children:
1 - 2,098.75
2 - 4,197.50
3 - 6,296.25
4 - 8,395
5 - 10,493.75
6 - 12,592.50

So, for a single assurer to qualify and support an application for 2 adults, his income should be $40,076.40, ie himself and 2 parents make 3 adults to provide for.


Hello Kva,
Iam going through the same process about Aos.... Pls can you tell me when you know that you wasnt qualified to be an assurar ? Ist before the interview or AFTER the interview?
Did the centerlink lady allow you to filled the AoS form and sign it before letting you know that you wasnt qualified?
What is the process of filling and sign the AoS form?
Your advice will be really appreciated.

That's the thing, they don't tell you anything before, only after. You should do your research on all the rules before the final immigration stage comes. However, I did not (though I should have) research the numbers for required income threshhold, and I'm not sure I would have found them before she showed them to me.

When the parents' turn finally comes in the global queue, you get a pack of letters and forms to fill. In my case they came in the email, because I chose to communicate electronically. In that pack there is a letter from DIAC to Centrelink, about AoS being required. I filled the form, and made an appointment.

Now THIS IS IMPORTANT: any potential assurer has to call Centrelink personally to make an appointment. I tried to call for a new appointment (which is a couple of weeks away from your call, usually), and look for a joint assurer in the meantime, but Centrelink said, "find them 1st, then call: they have to call us personally", even if you want to come to that AoS appointment together (then call together). Lady on the phone said, "We have to speak to every assurer 1st, before we give an appointment time."
Every assurer fills and signs his own form, so at my 1st appointment she gave me another blank form for the other assurer. Forms are available to print out on the Centrelink website though (search the Centrelink website for the form su594_1009).

So, if you are going to have just one appointment for all assurers, then call and book together. Or, if you are confident that other assurers will turn up at the appointment with all proper documents, let them do it independently. Either way, have all documents ready at the appointment: pay slips, tax returns, etc.

Good luck.

Thanks for the explanation Kva, Yes i got my own AoS required through my e mail and i sent the letter to my partner who will arrange for the person to be the assurer. They both made appointment with the center link and when they got there my assurer got interviewed and fill the form and signed it in the present of the lady with the attachment of all the requirement.
And the lady said that they will get back to them in 2 weeks time.
So to my point of view ... it seems that they lady have already assessed the assurer to be eligible before she can allow them to fill and signed the form if not she could have tell them that they are not qualify straight away. Or what do you think of this? I think if the assurer is not qualify the lady will tell them straight way.
Did she tell you how long it will take to process the AoS?

No, just told me to ask DIAC for a time extension, and to find another assurer.

Can i ask a quick question?
My Assurar have lodged the AoS form with center link since about 2 weeks ago and havent hear anything from them.
My question is that should we call Centerlink to update us about the process Or we should just wait?

That's great news, congratulations! As I understand, you have only one assurer, right?

I wonder if Kva managed to find assurers for his parents...

Kind greetings,
bma
