So turns out I was overpaid after all the jazz and the back payment. (Although this is being re-investigated as it seems wrong).
Grrrr - now I do have the money still in my bank but I was feeling relief as it meant I had all my savings for surgery. So now I'm wondering if it turns out I have indeed been overpaid - does anyone know the rate at which I would have to repay it??
It's near $3000

You can repay as much/little as you want.
DP has a debt of about $10000 (don't ask! Centrelink suck bug time) and she repays $10 a fortnight. They were super rude when they called her to arrange payment so she said $10

Oh really?? Is there any penalty or interest though??

I'm fairly sure there isn't. It goes to Recoveries Corp. I think centrelink applies a fee on it before it even goes to recoveries corp.

I had a debt last year that was $2600. They sent me a letter saying they were going to take an obscene amount of money from me per fortnight and I just couldn't afford it. I called them and decided on $20 a fortnight to repay. No interest is put on it but if you haven't paid it off by the end of next financial year and you get supps, they'll keep the supps and any tax refund you're entitled to to pay the debt.

We incurred a debt last year and they insisted we pay it back within 12 months. It was about $3k so we're paying about $300/ month.

Perhaps it makes a difference if you're on PPS?
