Centrelink online account help - Checking your employment details

This guide shows you how to confirm or update your employment details.


Step 1: confirm each employer

If you’re not already in your Centrelink online account, sign in to myGov and access your account.

You need to confirm if you worked for each employer listed.

If you worked for the employer listed, select Yes – I worked for this employer.

If you haven’t worked for that employer select No – I never worked for this employer.

Some employers may have a different trading name to their business name. This means that the employer or employers listed on this page may not be familiar to you at first.

You may need to consider whether the employer uses other names, such as a trading name. To find out if an employer is using a different trading name, use the ABN Lookup that displays when you select No. You can check the employer’s details by simply entering the employer ABN into the search field.

Once you have finished your answers for each employer, select Next.

If you’ve declared your earnings under a different employer name to what the Australian Taxation Office has told us, use the drop down box to select the exact employer name you’ve declared this income under.

It is important to match the exact employer, so we can take into account any earnings previously declared by you.

If you select No – I never worked for this employer you won’t be able to continue. You’ll need to call us on 1800 086 400 as we need to talk to you to progress the review.

It’s important you read the Please Contact Us message.
