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having a permanent resident visa to qualify for the low income health care card, and her current and long overdue to be superseded subclass 309 is but a temporary one.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.
If they have acted on information provided by immigration if I was you I would be checking to make sure she is still on a 309 and nothing has happened with her visa.

If she is still on a 309 then I would email Centrelink and ask for clarification quoting references from their website. As has been said Centrelink do sometimes get things wrong.

Done, she got a stock reply but it just confirmed what we already knew, that the 309 lasts until a decision on a 100 is made.

I'm concerned that we may automatically be tried by whoever cancelled things, she was rejected last week when she queried them, I've asked her to see if she can apply on-line and do that, reading the rules indicate that she's entitled to a low income health care card so we just want what we're entitled to.
There's a human toll with what's happening to all 309 holders and those of our period have been mislead, it's very painful reading of how after 104 weeks of a provisional period instead of the fluffy world of rights and help that seemed promised after then became a dungeon cell, if it wasn't for the internet with which she can keep contact with her family the stress would be overwhelming.

It is not a minimum 21 months waiting, it is 75% of applications processed within 21 months, therefore someone could hypothetically get it in in 12 months. It is the same as 37 months is not the maximum, it is that 90% of applications are processed within 37 months. Therefore 10% of applications can take longer than 37 months.

When will madness from DIBP going to end. When I applied, we were quoted 8-10 months for Subclass 100. Then few months it changed to 12 months, followed by 15 months more recently.

Now it is 21 months and can take up to 37??

Looks like DIBP don't really care about so many genuine applicants who have been doing the right thing and been waiting patiently.

I'd be writing to Ombudsman and I think DIBP need to be held accountable for this mess.

Just so you know you can't complain to the ombudsman if you have not complained to DIBP first.

I will be interested to if the ombudsman investigates your complaint as there have been quite a few people in the last couple of months that have been complained and the ombudsman told them that they will not investigate as DIBP are still within the global processing times (which DIBP control, so therefore in IMO DIBP will almost always be within the global processing times).

I wonder if the influx of complaints is why they raised the GPT.

That would be a big part of it I imagine. There is also the refugee people that need to apply for visa's before a specific date so I would imagine someone who does not have a visa (and Medicare) would take priority, though who knows if they have taken staff away from the permanent processing centre.

There is also staff reductions. By now immigration would know their budget for the year for each area so they may need to reduce staff numbers.

Alot of hypatheticals really.

This is really weird but my wife received a new medicare card this morning along with a letter stating she was now a permanent resident, it was dated 13th July, but as yet no notification from Immigration. Naturally she's now overjoyed but I don't think the stress they've put us is right, something about the system is awry. She still hasn't received an official letter so naturally Centrelink are still fobbing her off.
Our timeline is Married in Phillippines 29th May 2013, applied for 309 a week later, Visa granted March 2014, arrived Australia 28th March 2014, a happy time was then had for 104 weeks until our world collapsed with my pension as expected being cut to the married rate but her finding she continued to have no access to any assistance from Centrelink, from a friend we found she had to apply again for a 100 visa (Centrelink have always offered the absolute minimum of information to us), that application was received by Immigration on the 20th April 2016 and now appears although unconfirmed to be granted on the 13th July 2017.
I'm now naturally confident that Centrelink will place a further 13 week wait on any claim she makes despite her being 70 weeks past the point she should have thought herself permanent, so the volunteer work she already does will stay very much volunteer, I hope they surprise me.
