Hi All,
I have just had a baby boy. I’m a single mum, my 4 year relationship ended before I knew my little boy was on the way. I have 3 other children, who I was receiving Newstart for, now, I am a still waiting for my claim for my Parenting Payment to be processed 9 weeks later.

Has anyone else waited as long as this?? I am yet to receive FTB including my son.

I’m starting to really stress, I’m behind on rent, need school supplies for my children and Centrelink can’t give me a time frame when I call them.

Interested to know how long others have waited?

Thanks
M xx
