I hate the phrase 'centrelink cheat' why because when Hank ( you know the head dude) goes on TV he calls anyone who has been overpaid a cheat. Heck Im a cheat as i wrote on the form I was earning $8k PP ( 10 years ago) they processed but apparently entered $800..I ended up with a debt and it wasn't till a year later someone checked on my behave and said 'you didn't lie the staff member entered numbers wrong your form were correct"...woohoo..still had to pay debt.
My point is 'cheat' it to far ranging. Im with you I have a couple in housing comission in our street who's hubby does loads of cash in hand work from his home business ( probably alot more than we get from hubby's wage) yep it annoys me but at the end of the day..karma..I can sleep at night knowing Im doing nothing wrong..them well.
And yes also know a few single mum's who aren't and claim..annoying yes...but it comes around

Yep I sure do know someone.
I know 100% of the story too. Outright cheating the system. Blood boiling stuff for me, because the system exists to help people who need it. Cheaters drain the system. It's unfair.
I'm probably more fired up right now because I've just spent half of the day preparing everything for DH and I to do our tax returns tomorrow and the amount of tax we pay in a year makes me feel ill. I don't mind paying tax towards positive things like infrastructure, education, health and centrelink etc but let's face it, it's the taxpayers who support the cheats.

Moreover if she's on payments she probably is poor.
And you don't pay $50 for housing commission houses.
It sounds like you have a grudge aginst her.
Child care isn't free for anyone, even those on parenting payments.
Perhaps it wouldbe more constructive to worry about something else.

How does everyone know such detailed information about how much other people earn and don't earn and claim from centrelink or as tax deductions??
This fascinates me in all these threads. Seriously. Do people swap tax returns or centrelink statements at dinner parties or the playground these days??

Welcome to the forum. If you have zero income then you would be entitled to a payment. Be it sickness, disability or even newstart. I had a gf that worked in a physical job until about 6-7 months pg and just could no longer go on working with back problems and other issues. She saw her dr who wrote her a letter for CL to get sickness benefit. I think it's only about $300 a week but it's something. Unless you will get a big payout from your job you will be entitled to something.
