    But I have a real hatred for ppl who say they are getting paid/pay day is x day when referring to centrelink benefit.

    To me getting paid implies earning a wage and centrelink benefits are a totally different form of payment.

    I know it's justo linguistic but me. I say I'm getting paid from work and I'm receiving centrelink benefit kinda thing but do consider it income in the sense if what we live off as opposed to income earnt iykwim
    I get PAID on Thursday's from centrelink, due to my awesomeness. That and because I'm a citizen in Australia and we do get paid income support payments if needed.

    We don't get any centrelink because we don't qualify. And I don't judge DH income before tax. I consider our income the money in our account every week from DH job. So DH after tax income

    Imo, you (and I) get given money from centrelink rather then paid.

    Why is it called a payment? Why is it still taxable?
    I don't say my earnings, I say my payment.

    I think Clink calls it a payment and says amount paid, on their letters.

    I include everything because I'd look real stupid trying to claim I live off as little as $500 a fortnight lol.

    Ummm....I absolutely slammed the last person who told me not to call the day our benefits went in our account pay day. I'm more secure in myself to let it bug me these days. Benefits will be part of our lives for a very long time to come so I can't let people's silly comments get to me.

    Yeh they do call it payment. I just don't like it. Implies you working/earnt it. I don't work for my ppp or ftb. I work for my wage and as its low I get a subsidy from clink.

    But like I said its just linguistics. I just dislike the mentally of ppl on the dole viewing x day as pay day. You get paid if you work, you get supported by government if you are unable to work.

    Btw not having a crack at those who can't work or parents etc I gratefully accept my ppl and ftb and believe raising a chd is a valuable contribution to society so pls don't attack my post on that level it's not what I mean

    End if the day you can call it whatever you want though. I just think breaking the poverty cycle starts with ppl accepting government support as a temp measure until such time they can support themselves and viewing benefits as 'getting paid' doesn't do that IMO.
