My stress levels went through the roof because I knew that I had done the right thing, and they gave me only 28 days to prove my case.
I think my previous employer stuffed up the income statement. It stated $4,189 more income than I actually got in that period. Huge company, idiots.
Luckily all my pays went into one bank account and I got the printouts to prove my case.
After submitting a ton of documents, I never heard anything from Centrelink again.
No confirmation, no phone-call, nothing.
So my stress continued because they left it hanging. It may have been an employer stuff-up, but Centrelink should have acknowledged my proof of non-debt.
I did not appeal through Centrelink appeals court. I simply provided proof with bank statements.
I think that a simple phone-call would have been nice. A letter of confirmation would have been better. Just no respect for people.
