Aparently centrelink break the full payment down into what my usual work pay rate is, to translate redundancy figure into a length of time (they refer to this as IMP). For that period of time they don't apply my payments as if I were still earning that amount, but they entirely remove my benefits.
So this means I'd loose my pension card. In adition to this, a redundancy payout takes me over the threshhold for healthcare card ($46k in a year), and I think it might also remove my family tax.
So I'd have to live on ONLY redundancy, for the period that my pay would have taken to reach the payout figure, despite the fact that it's currently recognised as not enough to live on, and as such gets supplemented by PPS and FTB A and B.
SSSSSOOOOOOOOO, If I don't get one of the replacement roles, I have to take ANYTHING that they offer, regardless of the income, cause otherwise I have to live on LESS than if I had never been employed, and I would need to do it without concessions.
