Hi I am due in December and I have called the family assistance number twice today plus been into medicare and haven't got consistent answers im really worried and a bit stressed about the whole thing to be honest! I have been employed for 1 day a week with one employer (7.5 hrs a day) for 2 years. I calculate this as being a total of 315 hrs in 10 months would I be right in that? Plus in march this year I worked one 15 hour day but this was a once off with a different employer. I also work as a mystery shopper and im paid on a per job basis although each job has a certain allocated time to it which is anywhere between 15 minutes to an hour. I try to do these after my 7.5 hr day or sting a couple together in a day. I would say I have probably done a few hours worth that would qualify as being more than one hour a day. Based on this do you think I would be eligible? Is my mystery shoppinf employer obligated to provide me with an employment summary if I request one as my payslips do not often reflect the actual days I have worked only the day they approved my report. :/?

You would probably meet the work test. But I agree with you on how frustrating it is! I had DS 7 weeks ago and I still haven't filled out my forms cos I just can't be bothered trying to get my head around their crap process. I was self-employed so that adds another level of complexity to the whole thing.
You need to be able to cite your taxable income for the financial year prior to when you have your bub on the form so you will be fine once you have done your tax return for the year (e.g. If you have your bub in dec 13 you need to cite your taxable income for the 2012-2013 financial year). I have done my tax return yet so that is holding me up.
Dealing with Centrelink is like trying to speak another language.
My favourite bit is where they keep telling you to lodge your form online...but to do stuff online you have to be an existing customer!

You can register yourself online so don't have to be an existing customer. The online claims as processed faster than paper claims.
The income figures you provide are an estimate for the financial year and don't have to be exact
