I have not been on any Centrelink payments for 5 years. They are asking me for money I earned on student income!
As a trained lawyer I know what my rights are to dispute this but I am stressed how they won't deal in writing and constantly try to put the onus on me (to not be a liar).
The income checker website jumped from 2-3 weeks at different spots so I am angry at this number which appears to be pulled out of someone's backside.
I've written letters and they only want to deal with people on the telephone.
You are entitled to get something in writing.
I think that the government is targeting people who used to be on welfare.
