Centrelink assistance

Centrelink is a government agency that supports Australians on low or no income. Students might also be entitled to benefits.

Am I eligible for Centrelink benefits?

Whether you’re already a student, or are planning to become a student, you should check your eligibility for Centrelink benefits such as Youth Allowance, Austudy and Abstudy. You might also be eligible for more general Centrelink benefits such as the Low Income Health Care Card, Parenting Payment and Newstart Allowance.

Keep Centrelink updated

If your situation changes, for example you take a part-time job or change enrolment, let Centrelink know straight away as this may affect your entitlements and may result in a debt if not reported.
