We can guide you through all the Centrelink steps so that you know exactly what to expect. One of the ways to speed up the process is to make sure you have all the documents you might need to register, such as:
- Proof of identity e.g. Australian birth certificate or passport, driver’s licence and a utility bill that includes your address
- Bank details including your account bank balance and (if applicable) your partner
- Proof of income i.e. payslips from jobs (current or previous)
- Employment separation certificates for employers you’ve been with over the last 12 months that you’re no longer working for.
