I hadn’t been into a Centerlink Office since I was 18 ( over 10 years ago) and so I asked my friend if it had changed much or not? When I used to go, there were times when I had to wait for 4 hours!! She said it was still the same…This particular day, I had another appointment to go to but I had over an hour and half before I had to be there. I thought I would risk my chance and thought if it takes too long I will just have to come back. I walked in, waited in line for about 3 minutes before talking to someone. They took my papers, copied what they needed and said that was it! I could not believe my luck, I was in and out of Centerlink in 5 minutes!
To top off my great day with appointments, my following appointment was at the docs (who also have the long waiting times) only lasted 5 minutes! Receptionist said I should buy a scratchie but I didn’t want to push my luck too far!

  • Sometimes if you are lucky somebody will direct you to a computer and tell you how to what you need to send the details via it.


  • It’s great when things go your way,maybe a scratchie and lotto!


  • That certainly was your lucky day! I have found that the quicker things are sorted in the office or over the phone with Centrelink, the more long term problems I have. They its all done, only for it to not be or for it to be done wrong


  • Should have got a scratchie


  • Too good to be true! It was your lucky day!


  • wow that is rare. should have bought the scratchy


  • I think you caught them on a good day . Lol.


  • Goodness me how lucky!!! I’ve always had to wait crazy amounts of time in both! You should definitely look at buying yourself a scratchie!
