Centrelink and your Entitlements

One of the first things to do on arriving in Adelaide is to make your way to the local centrelink office or look up the website to see what you are entitled too. For some benefits there is a wait of 2 years before claiming, others you cannot claim on a temporary visa and other benefits you may qualify immediately.

There are various checklists online that you can simply complete to see if you qualify before actauuly applying and the people at the local centrelink offices will also be able to assist you with your entitlements.
