Default Dentists and FBT

Just two quick questions for anyone to answer,

1. Can anybody recommend a good Dentist in the Manly West area for my 9 year old son.

2. Has anybody had any experience in claiming the Family Benefit Tax as a new migrant.

Cheers

Hi,

Not sure about the dentist. We're in the Manly area but haven't been yet!

We get family tax benefit. We just had to go to Centrelink and fill out the forms they gave us. They pay it directly into my account each month, although I understand you can request to have your employer add it back into your salary instead. What do you need to know?

Which CentreLink office did you use?, we tried the office in Capalaba and then said we weren't entitled to it!

Try this...
http://www.centrelink.gov.au/interne...g_payments.htm

you can find information in there about FTB A&B and what the eligibility criteria are. Did they tell you why you are not entitled?

We applied for FBT recently and because we are on a 457 visa we are not entitled.
