How to manage your payment
Your options for Parenting Payment.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
Some people can get income support payments each week instead of each fortnight.
You can get help to manage your money if your bank account is overdrawn.
Select the options that describe your circumstances. Then explore a list of possible Centrelink and Medicare payments and services online.
We can help you take away some of the financial stresses while you’re looking for work. We’ve got tips and tools to help.
We may continue to pay Parenting Payment if you leave Australia for a short time. You must keep meeting Parenting Payment rules at all times.
You can use our free and voluntary service to pay bills as regular deductions from your Centrelink payments.
