So I've had to stop working earlier than expected due to complications with my pregnancy (threatened preterm labour) and I need to claim parenting payment, rent assistance and FTB a&b (dh is a student on a scholarship)
We went to centrelink today and yes parenting payment will start in 2 weeks but they've said up to 60 days for other payments to start.
We basically need these payments to get us through until dh finished study and bubba is born. Dh will then get a full time job
What if we need that money earlier?? Can they push the application through? I've thankfully got family who will help us, but I was hoping we wouldn't need to adk them. I'm going back to cl on Thursday so is it worth putting pressure on them to get the payment sooner??? At this rate bubba will be here before the payments will start !!!
Bfp!!! Little bug due 25/6/12
