Important things to follow after 887

Recommended Posts

Think this should be a good space to discuss and share the needful things to do after grant 887.

  • Call centrelink and obtain a CRN
  • create a mygov account and link Centrelink
  • if you don't have medicare just relax it will come to you by post within 14 days
  • If you already have an interim medicare card( the one you got when applied PR) you will still get the green card by post. But the last digit will be changed in the card than the interim card.
  • If you submit a claim throuigh centrelink and you have dependents they will automatically assigned a CRN
  • Install the express plus centrelink app in your mobile and you can see their CRNs

@Jessi Thanks for your feedback on the other thread, and as you said medicare card came in post. Citizenship channel is too young for some of us and thought of creating a new topic to share what we need to do after the grant.

Regarding interim Medicare card. Do we need to go to Centrelink to apply for the permanent “green” Medicare card or they will send it to us without us doing anything after getting the PR?


if you check the Medicare site they are asking us to show proof when we get the PR in order to get the green Medicare card. Or can we apply it online? Anyone has any ideas?

      Hi All
      I have been reading about paid parental leave from Centrelink on different websites but is so unclear. My question was-
      we got 887 (PR) in August 2017, we were on visa 489 prior that. Now we are expecting a baby in month of June 2018. Am I eligible for Paid Parental Leave and Chil Care Rebate as I can’t afford to leave the job. We live in Darwin and renting and other expenses are high up here!! 
      NEED HELP!!

      question no 2- am I eligible to medicare now, can i apply for that?
