Thanks I hope so. My friend works there but she is out the back taking calls, sadly. Life would be a lot easier if I could just walk into a meeting with her!
I feel like a knob whenever I have to go in there. Like a huge failure a life. I don't have a job which gives me anxiety. My plan was to go back to work a year ago so I would have to deal with centrelink all the time and rely on them for money. (trying to find work but it's hard when no schools are advertising)

Believe me, I'm also looking forward to not having to deal with centrelink anymore too.

I called after we didn't get the payment at the beginning of the year. The guy I spoke to said that I missed out then because I didn't update our estimate to under 100k until 3 days after the cut off date. (They don't advertise that there even is a cutoff either- were just supposed to know by osmosis or down thing!) so I asked if I missed out completely and he said no I wouldn't- it would be back paid with the next instalment
But- I don't think he added any notes to my file or ticked a box on the system or anything so now I'm freaking out.
This $800 is huge to me because I actually under-estimated our income by about $2k (df was put in different roles and it was SUPER hard to estimate what his yearly final figure would be. I failed. Lol!) so now no doubt I will have to pay quite a bit back. I just don't want to miss any cent I'm entitled to, because things are so tight already.
The stress and drama!
(Sucks that teaching jobs are so hard to come by, right?)

According to my FIL, the reason why I don't have a job is that I'm not available 5 days a week and as soon as I am I'll get one. I'm just a little stuck as to who will pay the childcare bill in the meantime. My SIL had a job given to her with no experience and so he thinks that it is that easy for everyone. I haven't heard of any jobs coming up for next year yet. Come on you young girls - go have a baby or something!!!

Haha omg I'm saying the same thing to the partnered up girls at my boys school! Problem then is they would likely be replaced with a grad. I'm level 2. I wish it were easy to get a job, I really do!
I will definitely go after school drop off. Hopefully my boys won't care if I miss reading in the morning!

Sorry to sort of hijack but are the payments meant for each child in primary school? I have three in primary school but seems I've only been paid for two. One of them is in prep. I'll call centrelink tomorrow but saw this thread and thought I'd ask here first.
