Centrelink...do they know what they are doing ?

Post by bayman on Sun May 14, 2017 12:04 pm

my circumstances have changed, i've been there 6 times to let them know & have been told 6 different answers & one lady said to me ''i've been here 10 years & i still don't understand how it works''

on another matter (not related to me)
how much money can you have in the bank & still be entitled to the dole ?

When you work it out let me know
1Told big deal over my injury
2Your lying over your driving licence being taken away . I called services sa yes your blocked , trying to get it back .
Disability provider told me they had info on me from a specialist I saw for the industrial tribunal . Go in to talk about something else nope sorry your wrong we would not have that info .
Walk back to disability provider she brought me up on Centrelink computer there I am reportedly taking a drug that no doctor ever wrote a script on .
Had a phone call from Centrelink an irate Indian lady was going off at me she was irate told me I medically do not take care of my head injury or my diabetes. A week after my three monthly diabetes blood test and 24 hours after an appointment with the rehabilitation doctor re my head injury .
I had to go couple of times last week one visit I needed to know the start date of me getting benefits for my solicitor for my industrial court case .
I didn't know it tells you on your health care card I ran into I think the young irate Indian lady .
She told me it's on your health care card in to my wallet there's your date oh that's my concession card here's my health care card she looked really shocked and confused I've since learned in my situation I get the concession card .
There you go bayman
Also learnt Centrelink Torrensville is totally **** and Centrelink Glenelg is far better nicer people

Also my legal team will tell me
If I get a settlement and payout that's a big if like the Eagles winning a flag
I know already whatever I get legal fees if we win but also the small amount of new start must be paid back but there's also a length of time I will not be able to claim benefits
Now if that's hard
Try getting disability claim

Totally understand
I've gone through crap with them . My understanding if I win my industrial court case or there is a settlement and payout I must repay every cent they've paid me .
My legal team will do that ,
Once that's done it's a certain length of time I will not get Centrelink payments again
And all because I went to a work function and almost died and I was sober .

All I'm going through would not have happened if I was drunk they would have settled months ago . But no they want to be right .

Centrelink for me have not been nice
But what can we do I'm honest telling them the truth not interested
That's life I'll carry on
Job provider next week who told me off for not looking for work when I was on incapacitated benefits yet wants back on them so they do nothing .

Just an exeampke of Centrelink having no idea
My solicitor needed to to know my start date on benefits
Asked the lady at the podium she sent me to the computer to print out a thing .
Now I didn't know then it showed my start date my eldest told me this at home .
I didn't go off I just said to this young lady I don't want that I want just the start date she replied oh that's on your health care card . I went through my wallet she saw my concession card there you go I said no here's my health care card .
She was shocked thought here we go I'll get called in owe money can't have a concession card .
Researched on a Facebook Centrelink and other info page yes I can have a concession card .
You'd think Centrelink employees would be trained correctly .
