    Exactly what I'm thinking, I'd have two babies with me

    Right,
    Apologies for being a complete numpty about this, but we have been on the phone and they told us we can apply for EVERYTHING online
    "Great!" we say...
    Only we go online and all the do is redirect you round and round in circles.
    Can anybody help, has anyone applied online and what the heck do I do?
    We got a CRN but that's about as far as we have got,
    and we have heaps to apply for.
    Thanks to anyone willing to point me in the right direction

    They're probably referring to online services? Just use your crn to register.

    Oh and I got mine in 12 days. I did it all, on paper forms when bub was born and went in and handed it in on my way home from hospital.

    Have u got a Medicare office close by? My local medicare has a family assistance section and I went there instead of going to centre link ... They went thru the start of the claim for me on line then when I was happy I could complete myself they let me go.... Now all I need to do is take the hospital paperwork to Medicare after I have bub...

    They have had a reshuffle and centerlink, Medicare, and child support are all under the one division
