What is CentreLink?

Centrelink is a program in the Department of Human Services that delivers a range of payments and services for retirees, the unemployed, families, carers, parents, people with disabilities, Indigenous Australians, and people from diverse cultural and linguistic backgrounds. It also provides services at times of major change.

Most government payments are assessable for income tax purposes and must be declared on your tax return. However other government pensions, allowances and payments are exempt from income tax.

Some of the Centrelink services supported by TaxPack include

  • Age Pension
  • Bereavement Allowance
  • Career Payment
  • Disability Support Pension
  • Education Entry Payment
  • Parenting Payment
  • Widow B Pension
  • Income support supplements
