Centrelink Advice

Specialist advisers are available at the Adelaide Office to give advice on the Centrelink Review and Appeal process. 

Most Centrelink decisions are reviewable and there is no time limit, but be aware that you can generally only be fully back paid an entitlement if you appeal within 13 weeks of the original decision. Some particular payment types may have a longer period in relation to back pay. The Commission can advise about what steps to take and what evidence should be presented in the review.

If you have been issued with a debt, you should get legal advice before seeking review. If the debt is a result of fraud, you will need to complete a legal aid form for legal representation.
