Hi all. I receive child care benefit for both ds and dd. I have just pulled ds out of care last week. Do I need to let centrelink know that he is no longer attending or will the service notify them? There is no where on the centrelink site to let me update, well not that I can find anyway. Does anyone know?

Centrelink and childcare.

The first time I had my DD in care and then took her out I did not notify centrelink and just assumed the centre would inform them (I thought they would need to tell centrelink in order to stop them reimbursing them the benefit etc). Well they didn't. They kept DD on their books for months. I only found out because CL sent me a letter regarding the benefit. I called CL and they then took it into their own hands. I'm pretty sure the centre was committing fraud.

I've never notified centrelink and i used a fair few centres over the years. I never had any probs.
You might be able to change childcare status through online services?

Hi bubbasmum. My name is Russell and I work with the Department of Human Services in a team that responds to enquiries about Centrelink payments and services on social media sites like this one. It’s important you let us know if your circumstances have changed and this includes care arrangements for your child. If you do not tell us about the changes within 14 days you may be overpaid benefits and you will probably have to pay the money back. You can report your change of circumstances by calling 136 150, Monday-Friday 8am-8pm or by visiting a Service Centre. You may be interested in our Place in Queue service as our phone lines are currently experiencing peak demand. This service gives you the choice to keep your place in the queue without waiting on the phone. To access Place in Queue you must be registered for Centrelink phone self service. To find out more on how to do this, visit http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...nformation/piq
