To the OP - to put it bluntly Australia, fortunately, doesn't seem to have the same "throw all possible state benefits at the migrants" attitude and I reckon that's a good thing. Posting here asking how/what you can claim given you're here as a state sponsored migrant is, quite franky, un-Australian. You should have worked out your finances before coming and should be able to support yourself for at least the time you're tied to South Australia.
You chose to move.
By all means flame me. I worked in Housing/Council Tax Benefits for 15 years in the UK and got to be heartily sick of all the scroungers and their sob stories. Just doesn't wash anymore I'm afraid.

i'm not sure how you go through the whole visa process and get here not knowing that you cannot claim benifits for the first 2 years? Where are you from OP?
Some has a misconception that I want to survive on tax payer amount.actually I am making all effort to grab a job and trying best not to rely on centrelink.for extreme eventuality I am preparing for it.i came to Australia late due to my serious father illness .
How long have you actually been here? are you applying for any jobs or just jobs in your field?
Sorry Anil, hope you somehow find guidance .....in your present situation.
Information taken from Immigration SA website regarding state nomination and financial capacity (and can be used as a guide for others)......
11.1 Applicants must ensure that they have sufficient funds for settlement when they arrive in South Australia. Evidence of financial capacity is not required. However, Immigration SA reserves the right to seek additional information or evidence at a later stage if necessary. The requirement depends on whether you are applying offshore or onshore.
11.2 Financial requirement:
Applicants need to have combined cash and assets within the range listed in the table below. As a guideline, when applicants arrive in South Australia, Immigration SA recommends that offshore applicants have $20,000 in cash and onshore applicants have $5,000 in cash for settlement. Applicants should not dispose of any assets before the visa is granted.
Family composition Offshore Applicant: Combined cash & assets requirement
Onshore Applicant: Combined cash & assets requirement
Main applicant only Total figure between AUD$ 20,000 - 25,000
Total figure between AUD$5,000 - 10,000
Main applicant plus one (1) dependent Total figure between AUD$25,000- 30,000
Total figure between AUD$ 10,000 - 15,000
Main applicant plus two (2) dependents Total figure between AUD$30,000 - 35,000
Total figure between AUD$15,000 - 20,000
Main applicant plus three (3) dependents Total figure between AUD$35,000 - 40,000
Total figure between AUD$20,000 - 25,000
im not sure of legalities of visa etc , can you leave oz , go back to your wife/ family , get a job and save money and return when you have some savings behind you and then whilst you search for work in oz . i think its quite reasonsble the government dont give benefits out to people emigrating the first 2 yrs and expect you to support yourselfs , i wish the UK did the same

Ah !! what a missile firing from all quarters. when I asked for queries innocently; my predicament is bombarded with advices, Do's and Don'ts, rule books, decorations short of scroungers,charts, facts, my where about, go back and earn and then come etc. etc.
I never expected these . I expected precise reply from this forum. At present Only thing that comes to my mind is" If you cannot bestow flowers than please at least don"t throw thorns".Thanks to those who were really serious,sympathetic,personal.I am a NEW AUSSIE forget going back.
What did you expect was going to happen, you are on a forum where almost everyone has been a new immigrant, trying to find jobs, looking for housing, supporting families etc.
This is a forum, you may get answers to your questions but you will also get opinions, thats just how it works....
If you are looking for a precice answer to your questions..
1)Is there any source other than telephoning toll free numbers such as face to face or online chat to centre link for claiming of support benefit. you are able to attend a centre link office if you want to, although the information they give is the same as they give on the telephone
2) What is the age limits for kids to be eligible for child allowance. Have a look at the government website there are comprihensive answers to child benifit entitalments
3)Am I entitle for any support such as job Australia No, as you have been advised you are not entiled to any beneifts in you first 2 years
