What other help is available
We have a range of other services and information to help you manage your payment or get extra support.
- paying your bills with Centrepay
- tips about how to manage your money
- information about the weekly payment option and advance payments
- information about owing us money.
You can use our free and voluntary service to pay bills as regular deductions from your Centrelink payments.
Some people can get income support payments paid each week instead of each fortnight.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
