    I thought it was going up in 2008 as it has gone up every second year in the past but the article neostudded posted says it is going up this year maybe theyve changed it or perhaps the newspaper is wrong either way it doesnt much matter to us

    i heard its going up to 5000 as of July but i havent heard anything since. Also on the Centrelink Website it says its only 4000 until 2008 and then it will go up to 5000 so im not sure.

    I suppose... we can only wait and see hey. Either way its heaps of money lol
