My father died 3 months ago and my mother is now on the widow allowance, this is her only income. She will be receiving funds from my fathers life insurance policy shortly (approx $90k). I am just hoping that centrelink do not cancel her benefit due to these funds. I am aware that her payments may decrease but just trying to find out how much the payment will effect her benefits. We can "gift" the maximum amount allowed as well.
So just thought I would see if anyone on the hub worked for centrelink and may be able to provide assistance.
