Feeling SO frustrated with centrelink! Have a bub only 4 Months old and no child support either - trying to "Do the right thing" by going back to work... Did you know if you earn over only $118 they start taking away your benefits? I do not understand how we are supposed to survive or ever get ahead!! So crazy!!! I'm so fed up with it! But unfortunately you feel trapped by the system. The more you work, the less you seek to earn, and the more you need. Centrelink need to give single mums a chance!!
