    Default Centrelink mistake- end of year

    I know you are supposed to under estimate to Centrelink but I've made a mistake this year.

    DH's income will actually be 3K more than what I told Centrelink it would be.

    I'm stressing a lot about this.. What will happen? I didn't think about overtime and we have been getting ftb fort nightly but obviously too much.

    Tried to call them but can't get through

    You can update your estimate on the mygov site. Under estimating by only $3000 will not be a issue, if you have have a over payment they will take money out of your supplements or tax return if needed.
    Do not stress about it to much they amount you under estimated is not a lot

    We underestimated ours earlier this year, DH changed jobs and was paid $9000 in untaken holidays, money we had not anticipated getting. I changed it on myGov straight away and they changed our FTB payments accordingly. They were reduced by a lot but we didn't have to pay out anything. So I don't think $3000 should be a big issue
