Okay, so I'm at a crossroads and I need advice.
I've recently started working casually. When I called to let Centrelink know, the lady told me I should claim parenting payments as we were eligible for it. (Could have known that 3 bloody years ago!
Since I'm now working, I'm only receiving a part payment for the parenting payment. This is fine by me but I realised today that my weekly pay is far less then what I would get if I was receiving the full Centrelink payment. I'm earning about $200-$300 less each fortnight.
I don't know what to do. I've only been working for about 2 months and a family friend got me the interview. I don't want to do wrong by him but I feel like it's not even worth having the job now. I would get to be with my kids every night and be better off financially. I don't want to just rely on government payments to get by but I'm not going to be working full time again until my kids are in school.
What would you do?
