Employment income reporting

How much you or your partner get paid affects your payment. We need to know what you both get paid so we can pay you the right amount.

We’re contacting people who earn the same amount each pay to check their current employment income. They’ll also need to start reporting every 2 weeks. Find out if this impacts you.

Your Centrelink online account may already have your employer’s details filled in. Employment income affects your payment from us. To make sure we’re paying you the right amount, we need you to report your and your partner’s employment income.

When you get a payment from us, you need to know:

  • what to report
  • when to report
  • how to report.

You can get reminders to report to make sure you report your employment income.

You must report your employment income to us to avoid getting a debt.
