Centrelink

Hi,

My partner is currently on Parental Payment (Single). My Bridging Visa A subclass 010 has come through. Will I be able to qualify for Parental Payment (Partnered) or won't I be able to qualify for any Centrelink payments until my Partner Visa (Temporary) is approved?

Right now Centrelink is classing us as section 24 which means they know that we are a couple but they cannot legally class us as partners. So it would be odd if Centrelink put us down for Parenting Payment (Partnered) before my visa is approved.

Sorry you won't qualify for centrelink until you are a permanent resident.

I just hope centrelink don't cut any of my partners payments I've heard they done that to a few in the past.

They should if you are partners. It should not matter if you are entitled to centrelink or not.

im not sure but under section 24,if you have less than 500$ then your partner can still get a single rate of c/l. you wont get any for 2 years, but you can work IF you can find a job,pay tax,and then they will put him back on a married rate, and cut his payments because you are working, but still its ok ,IF you can find the work.

We are on section 24 as well.

My partner cannot contribute to the finances of the family with his current position, so as long as that criteria is met you will remain on a section 24, just expect quarterly interviews to see if anything has changed or not.
