  • Sabi don sa website "If you’re a newly arrived resident with a visa granted on or after 1 January 2019, these change affects you." -- VISA GRANTED ON or AFTER JAN 2019 so I think for those whose visa is granted this year.

    We filed our FTB end of August 2018 though we arrived July due to we are staying with our relative. May part kasi don na rent assisstance and we are not paying any rent. Our FTB was approved only January 2019 but payment is from BM. Depende ata sa centrelink officer who's processing. Last officer was like a meh while the other officer we went to told us that our claim was taking so long so she followed it up and then it was approved. Nahiya kasi kami mgfollow-up ng mgfollow-up baka may sabihin. :\">

    Be careful when estimating your income. I think it is better to over estimate it than under because you have to return the excess at end of the FY. When we updated our income (Jan 2019) with my assumption of me starting to work, our FTB payment stopped. Hopefully we will not return any since until now I am job hunting. We were thinking maybe because we have a CCS (child care subsidy). May effect po ba yun or because of the threshold? Hirap intindihin nung nasa website. @-)

    @Birthmark ang pagkakaintindi ko base sa explanation ng staff sa centrelink, may mga income test and need eligible ang anak mo before they will give assistance through FTB B. So kailangan ang presence nila dito

    Thanks @[email protected] !

    @carlosau Base sa mga nababasa ko, pwedeng wala pa. Ieestimate mo lang yung income for the year. Tapos para tuloy tuloy yung FTB B, dapat one income family kayo. Pero wait tayo nung nakaexperience na talaga.
  • Hi, I have written about the benefits and claiming. Hope it will help

    https://juliatheambitioussoul.blogspot.com/2019/03/centrelink-benefits-and-how-to-claim.html

    @carlosau I think not necessarily may work but in the application form, you have to estimate the household income (You and partner) for that FY. Once nalink na yung account mo sa mygov, you can claim online and just wait. Most of the claims are done on mygov. You only go to the centre for registration, verification and clarifications (can call their customer service pero mahaba din pila. Try late afternoon. They are open until 8pm Mon-Fri.)

    Hi po! BM namin on May, plan po namin magrent muna ng room pagdating. Ask ko lang ano po ba yung usual na dapat ko malaman or pwede ko itanong sa owner before kami magmove in? (aside sa weekly rent, electricity, water, wifi, furniture) Wala na po kasi kaming time magview ng unit and first time po namin magrerent.

    @osss Okay ang ftb b, dala kayo hard copies ng joint account niyo ng spouse niyo sa pinas hahanapin din or need fill out sa forms. Then to claim for ftb b, online lang lahat. Basta sa registration sa centrelink and medicare need ng main applicant input lahat ng details ng independents niya. All the best!!

    NAB ang bank account na kinuha namin, 0 maintaining balance and 0 initial deposit. Wire transfer lang kami from Malaysia.

  • milktea13milktea13 PhilippinesPosts: 294Member
    Halow!

    Nag BM na kami last march 12.. sa airport ng pinas inoopen isa isa maleta na ichecheckin for swab test then didikitan nila sticker.. then papadocument check ka sa avsec (nandun lang din) bago mo mapaweigh and check in sa airline.. mahal ang excess baggage ng cebupac 1200 php per kg hahahaha kaya maganda bago kau dumating weigh muna.. pacargo nlng siguro

    Sa airport ng melbourne swabe ang bilis namin haha from declaration of goods to immig to exit mga 5 mins siguro tapos d chineck laptop hdds luggages namin (siguro muka kaming katiwala tiwala) then bumili kami sim card 20 aud for 28 days na may 45 gb and unli call text to national numbers.. nakapromo sya nun.. lahat ng USD namin na onhand pinachange na namin sa airport kasi di masyado availability ng money changer sa sub.. sa cbd naman meron ako napansin ung malapit sa Coco

    Then pumunta kami cbd for the NAB atm.. ung default na binibigay nila ay plain atm card wherein u can deposit and withdraw.. request kau ng debit card para pwede online txns.. babalikan pa namin next wk for pickup.. ung medicare naman mahaba nga sa cbd katulad ng naexpi ni @leadme kaya kinabukasan sa suburb kami nagpunta ang bilis lang.. then nag gawa kami online ng tfn application..

    Now the job hunting begins... baka may alam kau jan naghahanap ng process engr / safety engr / manufacturing engr hihi
  • @RejNaix11 ask the minimum period of occupancy and notice period if any. You are binded by it kahit gusto mo na lumipat kaya yung iba they look for someone to assume their rent or just pay the rent without occupying the room/unit/house.

    @carlosau Thanks! Will be posting more about drivers licence, net salary and other important things na nalaman ko but it is for Queensland only. Each state has their own rulings although the procedures and rule principles are almost similar with exceptions. Hope the blog will help others to have a better picture on the life here down under.

    Thanks @caienri would you mind sharing kung anong job po ksi nakita ko sa previous post m na kumuha ka ng working with children permit? or pm mo po ako? kasi my fiancee also needs the working with children permit, she's a former teacher and she wants to volunteer muna sa day cares dito habang naghahanap ng job and nag aadjust sa culture.

    Quick update sa BM namin:

    Andito nadin kami sa Sydney ni fiancee :)
    Upon arrival sa Sydney Terminal 1, mabilis lang kami nakalagpas ng immigration though na-random check kami sa bagahe so pinahiwalay kami ng pila. grabe ang kaba ko kasi nagdala ako ng CPU akala ko di papayagan or bubusisiin pa hahaha yun naman pala aamuyin lang ng aso yung gamit nyo then okay na :)

    Mga nagawa namin on our 1st day (yesterday):
    1. Get Vodaphone Prepaid Sim (Starter Pack) - 40gb data sya tapos unli call and text na yata for Vodaphone subscribers then X amount of free calls international. 25AUD each then need ang passport pag bumili ka

    2. Get OPAL cards, ito yung parang LRT/MRT stored value, 50AUD ang pinaload namin each since wala pa kami bank account pra sa auto deduction sana.

    3. Nag inquire kami sa service center about sa pagkuha ng TFN, Driver's License saka Working With Children permit for fiancee tapos sabi nila online daw pnaprocess mga yun then for the License need pa daw namin mag exam.

    Gawin namin yung mga online applications today para bukas hopefully mkapag start na kami ng job hunting :) Good luck and God bless po sa ating lahat :)

    I’m a preschool teacher sa Pinas and child care teacher sa Singapore.

    Child Care Educator naman ako dito sa Sydney.

    Here are the links sa pagkuha ng WWCC.

    https://www.kidsguardian.nsw.gov.au/child-safe-organisations/working-with-children-check/volunteers

    https://wwccheck.ccyp.nsw.gov.au/Applicants/Application

    Since volunteer xa, check nyo na lang if need nya talaga ng WWCC. Mine is meant for employment purposes so I definitely need one and may bayad xa.

    Note lang na you need IDs. Passport and atm card and pinakita ko since wala akong driver’s license.

    Visit the links para maresearch nyo mga specific details based sa needs nyo. :)
  • cyborg5cyborg5 AustraliaPosts: 261Member
    In lieu sa drivers license pang ID purposes lang, pwede ka kumuha ng proof of age card.

    thanks sooo much @cyborg5 & @caienri :)

    nakapag file na kami TFN online tapos 28 days pa daw bago i-mail sa address namin, ganun talaga katagal? hehehe.

    done ndin sa WWCC online application, we printed the receipt and will present it later sa service centre

    For Medicare naman, napansin namin na need yung bank account so di pa nmin nacomplete yung form. Punta kami later sa bank pra mag open ng account :)

    @michaelguanzon_ust @milktea13 - welcome to Australia! Naaliw ako basahin yung BIG MOVE story niyo kasi it refreshed my memories of our own Big Move last Mar 2014. Parehong pareho halos mga pinagdaanan the first few days like getting TFN, Medicare, Bank account, etc.

    Yung totoong stress is nasa job hunting. Pero tiyaga lang, lahat naman magkakatrabaho eventually. Good luck!

    @milktea13 saan ka pong suburb ng Melbourne? West kasi kami so West and City lang ang mai aadvise ko, if looking ka for a job in a Mfg, meron sa Port Melbourne, Sunshine, Derrimut, Laverton. Madami din work sa mga Warehouse para sa kagaya natin, andyan din sa location na yan. Online appln lng po in Seek and Indeed.

    Sa East mas marami ata pero ndi na kami nag explore dun kasi mas mura ang house rent dito sa West. Goodluck sa job hunting.
