It frustrated me so bad that im scared to call them every time i call or get an email its another bill and no reason as to why they apporved me for the sickness allowance now i am paying it back also some family payments and partnered i have no letters as to why... i have been of centerlink since jan this year.. last year i had a dept with them at taz time i got my tax return and money off them.. this year they took my whole tax return and stung me with another dept. I have done so many hard years i can not even finace my kids nothing like laptops computers for school because of this.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

Not good at all its very frustrating it would be like winning lotto to see all the money back back have paid them
