Centrepay is a free bill paying service. Use Centrepay to arrange regular deductions from your Centrelink payment to pay for school fees, VET courses, laptops and camps and excursions.

You’ll need to give us permission to pay your bills using part of your payment.

You will need to tell us:

  • Who you want to pay: e.g. Whyalla Secondary College
  • How much you want to pay each fortnight
  • Which Centrelink payment you want the money to come from.

Centrepay take money from your payment before you get it and send it to the businesses you want to pay.

We take out your Centrepay deductions from your Centrelink payment last. Other amounts Centrelink will deduct first are:

  • Participation penalty amounts and non-payment periods
  • Weekly payment amount, if you get your payments weekly
  • Urgent and advance repayment amounts
  • Debt repayments
  • Child support payments
  • Tax deductions
  • Amounts directed to your Income Management account
