AUWU Announces Centrelink Debt Officer

3 January 2017
Australian Unemployed Workers' Union

Are you having trouble with a Centrelink debt?

With Centrelink sending out 20,000 debt notices per week – some completely erroneously – it is important to get information about your rights before you respond to Centrelink.

In response, the AUWU is now offering the services of our specialised Centrelink Debt Officer, who will be happy to give you advice, via email, about how to respond to your debt letter.

Please send the details of your debt to centrelinkdebtofficer [at] unemployedworkersunion.com and we will try to get back to you as soon as we can.

Advice is open to members only. Membership is free and open to everyone. (Click the “Get Involved” button to become a member of the AUWU.)

Please remember, this is not legal advice and you should use your own discretion when deciding what to do about your debt.

If you require legal advice, please contact your local welfare rights centre.
