    The sad thing is that even if u got a debt from Centre link u can't be forced to pay back a big amount. If you say u can only afford $10 a week that's all u will pay. Even if u die paying it. But the debt gets passed onto family. Not like hecs debt that's waived upon debt.

    I am paying back a debt at the moment from underestimating my income. I asked to pay back $40 a f/n but they said based on my income I had to pay $60. Maybe I wasn't pushy enough but I certainly wasn't given the option of paying less!

    They never give you the easy option out. I would definitely try and push for a Lower amount. I know not from experience but from hearing stories from a friend that works there.

    U can claim financial hardship. And then u can get it lowered.... They offered me this when I had a debt as I got a lump sum 4 days before end of financial yr which blew out my estimate :/

    I am nearly finished paying it off so I won't bother this time, but thanks. Should have asked when I first got it
