And on the saga goes. I m a carer for my severely disabled adult daughter. + I try and work a few hours, every now and then.

They reckon I owe them several thousand $ I’m angry, frustrated.
The fight goes on. As if I don’t have enough to worry about.

How do you feel about the way the Government has handled this process?: 

I try and work casually sometimes 20 hrs P/F .

They expected me to get payslips and bank statements back to 2011.
I scanned payslips to them. Late last year.
Things have been idol for a while. I’m stressed to the max over this. I have enough on my plate.
I have contacted my local member. They advise I keep appealing.

I dread going into MyGov and finding a “ surprise “ letter. This is how I found the first one. they didn’t bother to post it to me .
I have letters which I’ve taken my details out of. If needed. Any help would be appreciated.
