I have done the centrelink claim online (ftb/baby bonus) and they've asked for proof of birth. Obviously don't have his birth certificate and I've only just lodged those forms today but apparently I can take in the newborn ppl claim form that I got in hospital.
Should I take it to centrelink or to medicare/family assistance office? I did all DD2s stuff at the medicare/family assistance, better than sitting in the local centrelink for 2 hrs while they do their 'quick appointment' system.
And since I've done it all online, do I have to actually fill that form out or can I just take it in since its got the hospital stamp and stuff that says he was actually born?
Tried ringing centrelink. Not only was the FAO line disconnected (repeatedly) I sat on hold to another department in the hopes of being transferred for over an hour. Helpful.
Thank you for any information you can offer. I thought it was straightforward but I may still be suffering baby brain and didn't read something somewhere that told me where.
