Centrelink & Government Benefits

MBA Financial StrategistsWhat We DoOur ServicesCentrelink & Government Benefits

Government benefit entitlements don’t need to be overwhelming or confusing


Centrelink benefits, also commonly known as “Government benefits”, provide individuals with government payments based on their specific circumstances.

You are likely eligible for Centrelink if you are:
– Retired
– Unemployed
– Disabled
– Indigenous Australian
– A carer
– A student
– An apprentice
– From a diverse cultural background.

You are likely also to be eligible for Centrelink payments if you have a family and need financial assistance.

However, it can be very difficult to determine whether you are receiving the accurate amount of support from the government. As the rules to qualify for Centrelink frequently change, it can be hard to understand exactly what you are entitled to.

We know how confusing these applications can be. Our financial advisers will work with you to ensure that you provide all relevant information required to maximise the benefits you are entitled to.

On top of this, we can also provide confidential guidance around gift-giving rules. This may allow you to be eligible for a lower score on asset tests, which may end up providing you with extra benefits.
