    I don't know if they would back-pay you. I don't think so... BUT you could call and ask. Is this for the JET payments?

    I used to get this. I think they will only back pay you so many weeks... might be 4 or 6. Its a Education Supplement of $62.40 per fortnight and a one off enrollment payment of $208.

    I would definitely call and enquire about back payments.

    If you are receiving JET, it may be different. I wasn't eligible so not sure of the difference, if any, that makes.

    I use to get this, and JET for a period of time. It is possible to get both at the same time.
    I'm fairly certain they will only back pay to the date you filed the application.

    That really sucks.
