What days are Centrelink payments made?
Pensions are paid fortnightly, but calculated on a daily entitlement basis. This means that your first full payment at the new rate of pension will be paid from the 2nd payday after the indexation date.
Does Centrelink pay early for public holidays?
If you don’t need to report employment income, Centrelink will pay you early. “We won’t delay payments because of a public holiday, but we may pay you earlier than normal. An early payment is your normal payment, just paid early,” Centrelink says on its website.
Can Centrelink look at your bank account?
It is your responsibility to update Centrelink if there are changes in your assets or income. Many people believe Centrelink has access to your bank account and will take it into consideration for your payment rate. This isn’t true. Centrelink can’t access your bank accounts to determine up to date figures.
What happens if you don’t tell Centrelink your working?
If you don’t tell us, we may pay you too much. This means you may get a debt and you’ll need to pay us back. You can choose to update your gender details, name or title with us.
