Parenting payments

Answered 7 months ago

I am taking parenting payments when I submit the claim I made a mistake there was a question. Dose your partner is a director of company or hold shares. I answered no because he is not a director but he got partnership. I thought they were talking about the shares which we buy from the shares market. I rang them to let them know that I started working. That time they find it out i made mistake. It happened only because I didn’t understand that question. What will happen now. I am very scared what I have to do.

Honest mistakes happen. If you were overpaid you might need to pay it back and they should let you do a payment plan. Those forms are so confusing at times, I bet it happens more than people realise and it’s simply a matter of just working with them.

Due to an employer mistake and an ATO miscommunication we ended up being over paid by $7,000!! We went on a payment plan and the lady I spoke to was very kind about it all. Rest easy, I think you'll be ok albeit repaying some money :) xx

If you have been overpaid you will need to pay it back. It doesn't have to be all at once, you can go on a payment plan.

Highly doubt it. If they put everyone in jail who accidentally got overpaid, there would be no room left. Jail time would be saved for those who knowingly rorted the system for a large amount.
