Ugh looks like I miss out on everything.

The system is crap. I'm not eligable for anything as I am married to Pom. He doesn't get anything as he's not a resident.

I'm a full time uni student and had my payments cut off when we got married, no warning leaving me with no option but to defer. Extremly frustrating!

Yeah As much as I dont like Krudd. , if you have an income under 80K as per your last Tax statement you may be eligible .. May being the operative word..

Good luck

hmmm....doubtful that we will get it - not that we earn that much, just somehow will never get any breaks! yeesh, I'm an apprentice dammit! lol
only good thing krudd has done for us is reduce our 2 (yes, read that two) mortgages down around $1000 a month.
good on everyone that does get it though & thanks Tory for posting the link Wink

Pom's not a resident for at least another 2 years. Even though we are married so he doesn't get it.

Not on Fam bens for obvious reasons so no single income payment

Im not on Aus study as the rules are rediculous so I don't get the study one either!

BAH! Would be really nice to pay off some debts.

Off I go to grumble and congrats to anyone who scores a bonus!

from what i have heard and read, people who recieve family tax benefit B and anyone who paid tax last year will get a payment if they earn under 100,000.
which means people on newstart won't recieve it as they don't claim for tax.
Also i don't think the elderly get it this time either. the reasons behind this seem logical but the majority of people won't go on a spending spree, most will pay off loans, credit cards etc.
The last lot of cash bonuses around 60 percent was spent on loans, credit debts and placed in savings account and around 30 percent of the money was spent on pokies, new TVs and other WANT items. Which meant it did not really help the australian eccomony at all.
the government is hoping by giving this bonus it will secure jobs for the future, more like a bandaid effect for the recession.

hopefully this helps Smile

DC did you pay tax last year? and was your income under 100,000? is so then you should get something. My suggestion would be to go to or ring centrelink to see what you are entitled to and if they dont help discuss it with the agencies social worker there.

Did pay tax but it was off centrelink income. The info on the link states that it is 'workers' taxed income.

According the customer service rep at Centrelink the people who DON"T recieve the bonus are centrelink customers who ONLY have the following benefit
Aged pension
Disability Support Pension
Newstart
Carers pension.

However, if they have Family Tax Benefit B, they will recieve it. Along with other arrangement like the drought assistance as stated in the link.

Hopefully this clears a few things, i would recommend people speak to centrelink to confirm whether or not they will receive anything

I am wrapped that for once "I" a single, not a parent full time working person actually gets something finally!!!
About bloody time!
No offense to all the mum's and Dad's out there but I get quite disgruntled with all the baby bonuses and $1000 hand outs just for having a kid.

Where's my bloody bonus for working full time and paying taxes while all these people are popping out kids!
Thanks Kev! it will be a huge help to myself and alot of others out there.

AMEN!! I feel the same way, except im not a mum Smile wont be for a lil while.
I have never recieved centrelink because my parents just earn above the cut off line. I had moved out of home and tried again for asistance but was declined because i was not kicked out of home or being abused so technically im still considered as my parents problem. Then i was told to prove i was independent so i got a job, started uni and saved 3 grand to be told i couldnt recieve any help as i now earn too much.

thankfully now i can get something back for paying tax and working my butt off

from memory it was youth allowance so I may be in for a win!

With text books costing over $300 a semster that will be a def win!

I hear you Tory.

worked my arse off for the past 5 years when I finished school. Was working when at school too. Now I am a full time Uni student studying Law and I am unable to receive benifits becase Pom earns over $250 a week.

As a law student I am expected to do 48hrs of study per week. Also have the property to look after and to run around after Pom as he is totally undomesticated.

Not sure where I find the time to work.

Here Here,
I have been trying to fit everything in, studying (travelling to get there), working in between classes, the horses and then i might think about having some sleep after more study. Study is classed as a full-time job and then we have to work to afford everything.

you should get it then, but i would just check with centrelink to make sure first.

the government should reassess the cut off levels of the average income so more people can gain assistance.


the only set-back is the time is going to take to get here. people who recieve centrelink payments approved for bonuses will get theirs in march and the others will recieve it in April, wicked Birthday pressie for me cheers

This is something that has really pissed me and my husband off, we missed out on teh $1000 bonus as we earned too much, however we know a family of 7 (2 parents 5 kids) who recieved $5000 and yet neither parent works, one is on disability and the other is claiming cares pension while workign full time (30hrs) for cash.
We were disgusted to hear that the parents took the money that they got simply for having the kids and spent it on themselves.
What the hell is wrong with people.
Once again we miss out on any government assistance, cos we earn too much, we pay taxes so that the others can benifit. When do we get a fair go?

Its all a load of Bullshit!!!
Give the money to EVERYONE!!
Why should the bums benifeit and the oldies get nothing.
My situation is the same, income is too high, although mortgage gets a huge chunk!
Well hey maybe we should all sit on our arses, in the gutter, needle in one arm, flaggon in the other and let the government and workers support us & our brady bunch family.

please don't i have enough clients at the present lol!
the only plus we have as the working class citizens is that we are going places in life. We can support ourselves and not rely on the government to help. There are third generation unemployed people who will always be in the system purely because of their family history, a lot can not get jobs because they do not have the skills or experience let alone the refs to get a job.
No one will give them a fair go, don't get me wrong there are plenty out there who just don't want to work and expect that it is there god given right to work the system.
I think eventually the government will work out that it does need to look after the working class as we keep the money turning.
