    Default Centerlink

    hi.. im having a mind blank about centrelink... If you give them your taxable income for the financial year and then your actual income once you got your group certificates is LESS than what you told them, do they give you the difference.... I hope that makes sense.Thanks

    Depending on the difference you may get a FTB back payment, plus CCB or CCR (can't remember exactly which/what one).

    So basically yes. If you've been underpaid FTB according to your actual income you'll get a back pay.

    Yep, once you've done your tax return and they have reconciled your ftb, they will pay out any arrears owing.
