    Default Online Application Centrelink

    So I recently applied for FTB with centrelink online, and was wondering if any of you guys have and what the waiting period was like? I still haven't heard back and it's been almost a month since I submitted my application...I moved from NZ however and have only been living in Australia for just over 2 months.

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated šŸ˜Š

    If it's been over 1 months aince you've submitted everything then call them...they can process your application over the phone.

    I claimed FTB online and got worried also. I think they told me it's a 30 day processing time? No harm in calling to check how it's all progressing though.
