I wanted to chat to someone who has gone from 2 allowance's to a carer payment.
I was talking to centrelink today and I not sure that my 2 children who are on allowance would make up enough points for a payment IYKIM.
I would love to chat if there is someone out there who has done it.

Carers allowance x2 or carer's payment

If you transfer to the payment you still keep the 2 x allowances but it's about what their care level is.

The payment is means tested which is why I stayed on Parenting Payment rather than carer payment because I can work more hours and earn more before it cuts out on that compared to the carer payment where you can earn less (not sure how it works with partnered parents I'm a single parent) and work a maximum of 25 hours a week.
