    So I have a question in regards to centerlink..

    I'm not currently on it but I am studying and working 2-3 days per week. I have just discovered some information that means me working and studying with a bub is going to be pretty impossible.
    So, because ive decided my studies are more important thanmy job, I need help understanding centerlinks online calculator?? DF only works 1-2 days a week because hes studying as well and he does get cwnterlink still. I just dont understand ftb aand b and all that other stuff and how to work it out.

    I was briefly in a similar situation to you when ds was little. I was studying and dh was, too. I was told I was only entitled to either family payments or student payments (not both). Family payments definitely worked out to be more. Dh was not entitled to any payment, despite studying full time while I was on ppp, ftb and fta. I am not sure if those rules are still the same, but that's how it was in 2010. Dh effectively worked full time while studying as a result.
