When you move to Australia on a PR visa, you can get some government benefits. These benefits or payments are given under Centrelink program by the Australian government, hence they are generally called Centrelink benefits or Centrelink payments. Centrelink benefits are not just limited to the low-income groups but also available for the families, job seekers, disabled and senior citizens.
There are more than 100 different Centrelink benefits covering almost all aspects of life such as having baby, raising a family, looking for a job, paying for education, paying your rent and electricity and even household help…phew! Australian government certainly knows how to take care of its people. 😉
