Significant impact on stress & anxiety. I'm currently not working & was planning on going on austudy while I'm a full time student, but this has given me pause.
It's ridiculous. Back in the day I filled out all the required paperwork & jumped through all their hoops to receive newstart payments while between jobs & yet none of this has been taken into account. I NEVER cheated the system & am being forced to pay back money I don't owe.
