CORONAVIRUS – REGISTER TO CLAIM A CENTRELINK PAYMENT
Contributed by MARGARET PLANT
You can now register your intent to claim a Centrelink payment through myGov.
If you’ve recently lost your job or your income has been reduced, you can register your intention to claim and we’ll contact you.
To register your intent to claim online you will need a myGov account linked to Medicare or Australian Taxation Office services.

Thank you to everyone who has gone online to do this today. You’ve done everything you need to. We’ll be in touch, but it may take some time to work through the high volume of claims at this time. We appreciate everyone’s patience.
