I’ve got a question about school kids bonus for other parents the get it. This week I will get part 1 for my daughter but she is being paid the primary amount instead of the secondary amount. She’s in year 7 which is secondary in Victoria where we live and costs a fair amount more then primary does (books, fees and uniform is around $1000 compared to about $500 for primary). Anyone else that has a kid that is classified as secondary in year 7 get this too or did they stuff mine up? Am just curious before I call them.

Ask your question

  • i think that your best bet is to give them a call! i think that they wiil need to up-date your child’s school details and i think that you can do that online but ring them so they can fix it straight away.

    Also last year they withheld immunisation payment from my tax and after waiting until christmas, i rang them and the first person that i spoke to told me there was no issue really and he said to wait two weeks and then call back with no real explanation of what was happening. it wasn’t good enough for me so i rang back and spoke to someone else who rang medicare registry and stuff and then it turned out they needed info from the doctor’s who had never sent the records to the immunisation register. The lady on the phone had rang me back, we organised the stuff to be faxed and she said that it was a big stuff around but she was putting my payment through straight away even though they were waiting for the doc. She was THE BEST person that i have ever dealt with at centrelink. So my point is that they have to pay you what you are entitled and if they don’t want to help, ring back until someone will. good luck

    i think your issue will be solved very easily though
