Book a Centrelink digital coaching appointment at a service centre

You can book one-on-one digital coaching sessions for free at any of our service centres.

We’ll help you set up and use our online services at your coaching session. This can increase your confidence in using our online services when it suits you.

Book your appointment

If you have a Customer Reference Number (CRN), you can call your regular payment line to book an appointment. Have your CRN ready when you call.

We’ll ask you some questions to help us understand the level of digital support you need.

Digital coaching appointments are 15, 30 or 45 minutes, depending on how much help you need. You can book extra sessions if you want more help.

Please arrive on time for your appointment.

Check our service centre locations to find one close to you.
