Centrelink delivers a range of payments and services for people. Centrelink was created in 1997, under the trading name of Commonwealth Services Delivery Agency (CSDA). But it was not until July 2011 that it became integrated into the Department of Human Services.
Centrelink offers payments for carers, families, indigenous australians, job seekers, older australians, students, etc. In addition, from the Centrelink website you can download a telephone app so that you can do some Centrelink business from your mobile device.
