    Default Awards, are they counted as part of annual income?

    If it's taxable income I'm fairly sure centrelink count it for their purposes.

    That's what I think! I'd rather be underpaid by them rather than ending up having a debt with them.

    I would ring them and ask. I think they are all reportable.

    Im not sure if its the same thing but we get 'fringe benefits' ? Which Centrelink ask for. For eg, we get paid $13k for travel and the employer matches a certain percentage of Super which adds up to a few thousand extra. And we also get 'remote living allowance' from the employer. So everything is added together and bumps our income up $25k.

    Hi bell & bug, I'm Marian, I work at the Department of Human Services in a team that responds to enquiries about Centrelink on social media sites like this one.

    To ensure your income estimate is accurate, you need to take into account all the adjusted taxable income components for you and your partner.

    Your adjusted taxable income includes; your taxable income (including any Parental Leave Pay), reportable fringe benefits, tax-free pensions or benefits, foreign income, tax-exempt foreign income, reportable super contributions and total net investment losses (less any deductible child support you may pay). If your partner's awards/extras/allowances are part of his taxable entitlement, they should be included. You might want to check with his employer as to how they are paid.

    There's more info about estimating your income on the Family Assistance website here; http://www.familyassist.gov.au/payments/income-estimation.php

    You can contact the Family Assistance Office on 13 6150 to discuss your individual circumstance.

    Hope that helps.
