Review of your details when you get Rent Assistance

We may review your rent details to check they're up to date.

We will send you a letter when we conduct a review.

We will ask you to confirm or update your rent details. Your Rent Assistance will stop if you don't confirm or update your details by the due date on the review letter.

If you and your partner both get a review letter, only one of you need to reply.

Confirming or updating your details

The easiest way to confirm or update your details is to log on to your Centrelink online account and select Rent Assistance Review.

  1. Sign in to your myGov account and select your linked Centrelink online account.
  2. Select Personal Details from the menu, then Rent Assistance Review. You can also access the review from the to do section on the home page.

If you don’t have a myGov or Centrelink online account, you can create one today.

You can also confirm or update your rent details by:

Rent Certificate

We may send you a Rent Certificate form to confirm the rent details you provide during your review. You need to complete the form by the due date or your Rent Assistance will stop.

You need to provide a copy of your lease or tenancy agreement (if you have one) with the completed Rent Certificate or get your landlord to sign the certificate to verify details are correct.

The easiest way to submit the form is in your Centrelink online account through myGov. For help, go to submitting documents using your Centrelink online account guide. You can also:

  • send it to:
    Reply Paid 7800
    Canberra BC ACT 2610
  • drop it in to your local service centre
