You know the FTB loan you can get twice a year or the PP one?

I would like to pay mine out early, but is that even possible?

Sure can.


Are you registered with centrelink online? You can go in there and it has a reference number etc to pay Via AusPost.

Or you can call them and they'll give you the details needed to pay it off.

I went in to my local centrelink and had to have the right amount but could pay it off then and there. I had to do it before I could get my house loan approved.

Centrelink office will no longer accept payments for debts. As PP posted, online services will have all the details.

Can someone direct me in the right place to look on online services?

I've went into a fair bit and can't find nothing about details to pay it off sad.gif

Log into online services. On the main menu side bar (left side) is a list of options.
Click money you owe- manage the money you owe.
Page will change to the debt you have, and there will be an option at the bottom saying make a repayment (above return home).
Click that and it will give you the details you need.
Hope that helps

It says I don't owe any money shrug.gif
I am talking about the advance payments, is that right?
In the advance payments section it has how much is still owing on them both.
Hmmm...maybe I'll head into centrelink and suss it out!

I am not sure then. It has listed in mine previous advance payment debts I have already paid off.
Probably worth talking to Centrelink directly.

Yes you can repay advances early..I am pretty sure the only way you can do this is by going into the office.
