The Department of Human Services Has Changed – What Does It Mean For You?

 

Did you know that the Dept. of Human Services is now called Services Australia?

Despite the name change, you don’t need to do anything. Services Australia will still deliver Medicare, Centrelink and Child Support payments and services.

Services Australia is organising two seminars in Paynesville next month to provide vital information for senior residents looking to navigate and better understand government social services and payments.
