Press pause on your Centrelink debt while it’s reviewed

You can ask us to review your Centrelink debt and pause debt repayments until your review is finished.

When you request a review of your debt, we’ll explain how we worked it out. We may ask you to provide more information about your income and any periods of employment.

You can ask us to pause your debt repayments during the review process. If you have made repayments and the review outcome finds you owe less money and you have no other debts, we will refund the money you have paid.

This doesn’t change the way we assess income, calculate debts or reduce our obligation to recover debts.
