My wife who was eligible March 2016, applied a few weeks later due to not knowing we had to put in another application but like all others is still waiting. The ongoing deferral of grants has been a chore which has just been made worse by her low income health card being cancelled despite the rules on Centrelink's site indicating she's entitled to it. It's very hard to stay afloat when the pair of us exist on only my pension, which also is only a married rate one. The 104 weeks they claim on their website is just a smokescreen for the misery that follows that provisional period.

I'm not aware of any issues that would be problematic, when she put the application for 100 in they acknowledged it and didn't request anything more from us. Just as others have done she asked about progress and was told 6 months, then later don't chase us until 12 months have passed, then later pointed to a service standards page that has no proper information on it.
Why she'd lose her health card because she's not a permanent resident is a mystery since the Human Services site indicate after 104 weeks on her class 309 she's entitled to one, they certainly acknowledged her period when they chopped my pension back to the married rate, yet still didn't allow her to access any services apart from health, not even the education which she would have liked to have pursued.
173 weeks now and quite frankly we feel information we perused before we began our big life change was false.

Is she able to get a job to help out?

If the health care card is something you believe she is entitled to (I don't know anything about their entitlements) you can email them and ask about it as sometimes the branch gets it wrong otherwise you can lodge a complaint.

Yes but with very limited job prospects in our area she only does volunteer work.

She did see Centrelink but they wouldn't overrule Immigration's decision, it's something we'll have to tip-toe about trying to to find out why, but it's terribly distressing and makes me feel a bit ashamed of our system since I'd taken her a long way from her family.

It's a shitty feeling when you apply for multiple jobs and the employers know nothing about visas and tell you that temporary visas don't give you working right in Australia!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My cousin had over 40 job interviews in the last year and a half, finally last week he was offered a contract!

Immigration has nothing to do with Centrelink it comes down to if you are entitled under social security legislation.

If it says you are entitled on Centrelinks website then email and ask why you can't get it.

I'm just checking the letter now and it's from Centrelink advising the law requires having a permanent resident visa to qualify for the low income health care card, and her current and long overdue to be superseded subclass 309 is but a temporary one.

Odd to me is how their website specifically notes the 309 visa as one that qualifies after the 104 week period.

They note on the letter that they've acted on information provided by Immigration.

Anyway I'm puzzled and I think you're right in that emailing them about it is the best option, however I'm hoping by sharing this information I may be helping someone else.

Centrelink employees sometimes get things wrong.

Its pretty clear though.
