Grebecci - you most certainly deserve the PPL you will be getting and any FTB you receive. As I said, I support payments like PPL and child care rebate. What I'm saying is that some of the most vocal members that are against welfare support for really low income people actually get a decent amount themselves, and are earning a lot more. So really have no basis to be begrudging a single mum $800-900 a fortnight when they are getting sometimes not far off that amount and earn tens of thousands more.

Push to increase inadequate dole rejected.
Tbh get a job, don't get a job. Do what you like. If you are happy to do menial work it is available (even to those people with degrees, yes I had 1). Just stop whining. I understand that people have to claim for short periods to get back on their feet and yes I think that it should be increased for those people. But as time drags on, unless you can PROVE you are actively looking for work, it should be reduced. The idea is not for dole to be preferable to work.

Re: Push to increase inadequate dole rejected.
I worked 2-3 jobs for a while, 4 at one point, because I couldn't get enough hours in anyone one place so I did a few hours here and there.

Serious question Delirium, 'cause I'm actually interested, but how do they do it, because my hubby isn't on super high pay and yet if I was to not go back to work next year after PPL runs out then we would be lucky to get $100/fn in FTB.

Just received a letter this arvo saying they couldn't assess a payment that I should have been receiving for the last 3 months because I didn't send the review form back. I received the review form 2 weeks ago and it had completely wrong information on it. I rang them (this was the 2nd hour long phone call added to the two hour long face to face interviews about said payment) straight away to discuss it. I was told I should have been receiving the payment and it should all be sorted. I specifically asked what to do about the form and was told 'don't send it in'.
It's absolutely comical.
