You need a myGov account to set up and use your Centrelink online account.

If you don’t have a myGov account, it’s easy to create one. If you need help, read more about how to create a myGov account on the myGov website.

Once you have a myGov account, you can access a range of services online, including Centrelink.

You’ll need to go to the myGov website to link Centrelink to your myGov account. You only need to do this once.

We keep all your personal and financial details private. Read about your right to privacy.

You don’t always need to call or visit us to change your Centrelink details. You can view, update or add information using your Centrelink online account. You can also cancel a nominee arrangement.

If you’re leaving a relationship or living with violence or abuse, there are some things you need to do to keep your information safe.
