Qu for Australian travelling families re Centrelink
I wonder if those long term Aussie families would mind chipping in on this one?
When we travel, we will need to be partly funded by our Family tax A and B.( along with savings and rental income)
From what I can gather from the Centrelink website , we will recieve the usual amount for 13 weeks and then it will drop to base rate after that? Likewise for parenting payment.
Can anyone clarify if this is the case or has been your experience?
I understand that I would have to return to Australia by 13 weeks to maintain elegibility.
So my second question is, would it be just me ( I would hypothetically be the receipient of parenting payment and family tax A and B) Or would all the children have to come home too.
Becasuse clearly. from Asia at least, it would be worth me coming home for a few days. Probably not from Europe, I woud have to do the maths.
But if we ALL have to come home, the airfairs outweigh the benefit.
I'd appreciate any thoughts, how have you organised your Centrelink?
To get our payments back to normal we had to present our passports to Centrelink, as evidence of our return. I'm not sure what would happen if you were to leave again straight away though.
Give them a call and ask...
Did you have to show all your children's passports? Or just whichever parent is the recipient?
