Centrelink and Medicare Registration

mtgrandemtgrande BundooraPosts: 18Member
Mga Kababayan,

I will be travelling to Australia next month (January 2014) to look for work.
My wife and 2 kids will just follow in two months time.

Question po sana on Centrelink and Medicare registration. Required po ba sila na nasa Australia or at least nakapag-initial entry na?

Or pwedeng passport lang nila ang dala ko kahit wala pang tatak ng Australian Immigration?

Plan ko po kasi na i-register na sila on January.

Thanks po!

    @mtgrande technically pdeng passport lang nila dala mo. hhehe pero bkt mo dadalhin ung passport nila? Or uwi ka pa sa pinas ulit para sunduin sila?

    Anyway, ung centrelink pdeng online lang, pero itatanong kase doon kung nasan ang wife at anak nyo. So mas ok if iregister mo na lang sila pag andito na sila. Anyway ung benefits for your family kase ay marreceive nyo lang if andito ang anak nyo. Yung medicare irrequire ung passport din nila or proof of identity. Kelangan mo ata pumunta sa medicare mismo to submit the Medicare application form. Yung form pde mo na sya idownload at iprint to get an idea ano mga kelangan isubmit. Here's the link http://www.humanservices.gov.au/spw/customer/forms/resources/3101-1306en.pdf

    Don't forget to bring yung baby book ng anak nyo and maganda sana if may certification from Pedia kung anong mga immunisation ang nacomplete na nya.



    By the way, pinakaunahin mo mgapply ng TFN (Tax File number, online lang din) at Bank account number (sabi nila pde online). Pde mo sabay gawin to. Once may TFN ka na, update mo details mo sa bank para mabawasan ung taxable amount sa savings mo. Kelangan pareho yan for Centrelink at Medicare (well bank account lang ata kelangan sa Medicare)


    Hope this helps. Tanong ka lang. :) While andito ka at wala pa sila, I suggest ayusin mo na rin ang driver's licence mo. If you're coming from Pinas, kuha ka certification from LTO kung ilang years ka na nagddrive.

    @stolich18, thank you for your very detailed explanation. Really appreciate it.

    Actually, nasa SG ako now, plan ko to move directly to Australia. Pero i still have contact with relatives in the Philippines, pwede ako makahingi ng certification from LTO. By the way, for Melbourne, I noticed there are 2 types of permit - Learners and Probationary. Alin po doon yung para sa atin?

    Regarding sa bank, meron na rin po akong Account from NAB (migrant classic account), for activation and card collection pa once I arrived on 14th January. I already schedule an appointement with the Migrant Banker assigned.

    So, dapat TFN pala muna unahin ko. Plan ko kasi to register myself in Medicare kasi nandoon na ako, pero if may way naman to register my wife and kids sana mas maganda. Dadalihin ko sana Passport nila then FEDEX na lang pabalik ng Singapore after registration. Not sure the risk involved though.

    Normally, gaano katagal ba bago ma-register and ma-approve ang benefits ng Centrelink?

    By the way, for Melbourne, I noticed there are 2 types of permit - Learners and Probationary. Alin po doon yung para sa atin?
    Both ...

    if you have a SG license from what people here have posted before you can have a full australian licensw

    if not .. you need to go the the L = Learnners ( by going to the DKT exam - computer exams ) and once you passed your actual driving exam they will give you either a P = PRobationary or a full australian license based on your years of drivign experience

  • mtgrandemtgrande BundooraPosts: 18Member
    Copy that Sir @lock_code2004 and Sir @JCsantos. Thank you for your response. Regarding sa Driver's License, since wala ako SG license, dadaanan ko both L and P. May value add pa ba yung certification from LTO Philippines regarding the number of years of driving mo?

    The certification will prove how long have you been driving in PH , tell the LTO to include the first issue date ... kung sa tingin mo na more than 3 years na kumuha ka .. or kung mag take ka ng actual driving test e mag 3 years ka kumuha ka ... if not then dont get one

    @mtgrande if I may ask, gaano na po katagal ang Phil. driver's license mo? I will be staying in Victoria. At sa pagbabasa ko sa Vicroads website, I found out that if more than three years na ang Driver's license, full Victorian Driver's license ang ibibigay once naipasa mo na ang 3 tests, namely written exam, hazard perception test at yung actual driving test.

    share ko lang experience ko.. I arrived here in Sydney last Aug 10 and sumunod lang family ko ng Sept 15. Nauna na ako nagapply for medicare then nag apply family ko noong dumating sila early September.. I submitted our Centerlink application mga October 3 since nag apply pa ng TFN ang wife ko which took two weeks... Yung centerlink application naming took 30 days to be approved..for some reason kasi nawala sa system nila yung ni submit kong papers... so I suggest na siguro better na I-follow up agad after 2-3 weeks just to make sure na alang problem sa requirements..

    @JCsantos and @StickyNote, thanks for your reply. I have a Prof License and it was first issued to me more than 12 years ago. It is still Active (Not Expired) until now. So I guess, I need to contact my relatives to get my Certification from LTO. Pwede po bang makahingi nito sa Regional Offices nila? May template po ba sila nito or aware na po ba sila about this certification? How much po ba?

    @multitasking, thanks for sharing your experience sir.

    mga sir/madame, ask ko naman po opinion nyo, once na na-activate mga visa naming family, pwede na kaya umuwi muna family ko? I will stay back in Oz then apply for Centerlink, Medicare etc. Is it required na nandito physical presence ng family ko when applying these OR sufficient na yung copy ng passports, Visa grant at arrival stamp?

    Thanks ng marami po!

    thanks po uli, maayos ko kaya within 2 weeks TRN at Medicare namin, magkakalapit naman office sa adelaide. Kuha lang kami temporary accomodation like hostel (if family is allowed) during that period, then iuwi muna pinas ang wife and kids then after a month balik na wife ko. Hanap muna ako accomodation for couple.

    you can do this in a day...

    TFN can be done online lang... it will require an address for ATO to mail your TFN so maybe you can address it sa kaibigan or kakilala ninyo sa australia.

    @TasBurrfoot, thanks po, ibig sabihin sir pwede na ako ngayon pa lang mag-apply online ng TRN kahit wala pa ako sa Australia, meron kasi ako address and telephone ng friend ko na ginagamit ko rin sa pag-apply ng work :-).

    Separate TRN application for me and wife? So bottomline po, Medicare lang talaga dapat iwalk-in pag dating sa Oz? Pero pwede ko na ifill-up yung paper form ngayun pa lang para pag punta namin ko dun submission na lang along with other documents, one form lang po for the whole family kasi may Person 1 to 4 naman dun meaning 1 card lang kami?

    thanks po ng mrami
