RRV and Benefits

    Recommended Posts

    Hi all,I might have to come over to Adelaide soon to help look after my Mum.I have a Residents Return Visa,and although I would'nt like to think I would claim unemployment benefits (I'm planning to work atleast part time)I'm just weighing up my options financially.I've always been very independant money wise and never claimed anything in my life.I think with PR you can't claim for 2 years but what about a RRV?

    I don't know but I think you would have needed to have been here for two years already.

    Could you ring Centrelink?

    If you're heading for this neck of the woods (iirc your Mum's in Modbury?) give us a shout. Hope things work out.
