Centrelink follow up details
Universities: Posted 7-8-06 Deadline - No Deadline
At the University Information Evening, I said I would provide information for students interested in applying for the Independent Youth Allowance. The basic details are that students would have to earn at least $17,667 in an 18 month period beginning from the day of your last HSC exam to qualify as soon as possible. Make sure you sign out of school on that day as documentation. You will not be eligible until May 2008 so, if you are deferring, you will not be able to receive this allowance for the first few months at university. Please factor this in to your costs. The first step you must take (both students and parents) is to contact Centrelink on 132490 to discuss your individual situation. You can also visit the Centrelink website. On the website there is a rate estimator which may help you. If you go to the Search part of the Centrelink site and type in "rate estimator" you can find it.
