Hundreds of thousands reach out to Centrelink


More thanĀ 280,000 Australians have indicated to Centrelink today that they need financial support.

Government Services Minister Stuart Robert says the MyGov website has had more than 2.6 million logins today.

He says the government will continue to increase the website’s capacity as required.
Australians in need are being urged not to visit Centrelink offices, and to lodge an “intent to claim” form online instead.
