    Default Reporting income Centrelink estimate

    Quick question about reporting income. My DP is currently on work cover & my report period is from the 12-25 but says I have to report on wed 24th for that period but that leaves us 1 day short if his pay week which ends wed but gets paid thurs & not knowing what his pay will be. Does any one know how to work this.

    Estimate it. Then next report you just plus or minus the amount so it all adds up. E.g. If you report 600 but he gets 550, then minus 50 off your next report. If you report 600 but he gets 650, add 50 to your next report. I used to do it all the time if i was unsure of my hours or pay. Its all added up by financial year so as long st the amount all adds the same for the year then its all good.

    I've done it a few times with my own income. Always try and over estimate though!

    Thanks so much. He earned $176 week before last week but was paid out sick & annual leave so when I had to estimate last pay I just put in the $176. So with thi a estimate he's been paid tonight so ill add the extra bit to that when report in 24th but it's asking for 12-25 but won't know what he gets paid until 25th so should I add that to next report period ? If that makes sense
