Centrelink Compensation Recovery
If you get compensation, it can affect your payments from us.
You can get a Centrelink Compensation Recovery payment if you get a payment from us and a compensation payment.
We calculate your Centrelink payments based on your income. If you or your partner are getting compensation, it may change how much we pay you.
If you have a compensation claim and get money from us, we may need information from you to review your payments.
