    Default Overpayment centerlink

    Seek legal advice. You will have to pay all the money back of course. Some kind of payment plan will be worked I would imagine.

    You can read other cases here to get an idea - http://www.cdpp.gov.au/case-reports/

    Definitely look into getting legal advice. Hope you can get this sorted, that is a massive overpayment!

    The op might be confused between parenting payment and ftb. Being overpaid $23000 im income support payments like parenting payment doesn't seem right to me because that's more than the maximum entitlement per fortnight. It sounds like ftb....but then she said she under reported....which tells me Some of her debt could be parenting payment and some could ftb.

    I didn't get $23k in cash from Centrelink!!!
    I'm pretty sure the OP will have to pay it back.
    Perhaps you should PM her your bank accounts details so you can get all 23k of Your Tax Dollars back?

    Parenting payment single isn't 550 a week. I think it's around $650 per fortnight.

    To accumulate that much debt you've either not lodged your tax return for a few years or you have racked it up in a year, in which case you wouldn't have been applicable for any payments at all and for that to happen you'd have to be earning quite a lot.

    I'm normally sympathetic towards debts as small amounts are easy to get, but I don't think we are getting even close to the real story. In which case no one can give you good advice when we don't know the real details.

    Yeah let's pick on the law abiding citizen instead of the welfare cheat.

    Anyway I'm not $23k in debt, facing criminal charges, potential jail time (and subsequent inability to look after my three children) so if this is meant to be some sort of a completion I think I've won.

    Op has only 1 post, either a hubber under cover OR you've all been trolled.
    considering she had worked during the time ATO and CL systems do talk AND as many have pointed out this amount is actually higher than maximum I suspect there is more to this story

    That comment seems pretty uncalled for. I'm sure there's a fair percentage of people who work their asses off feel the same about where their tax money goes to. You obviously don't care.
