Just granted PR after year on 457, what do I need to update/change?

Recommended Posts

Hi all, any advice appreciated. 186 just granted, do you know what I need to change with medicare etc?

 

so far I'm thinking.... Ring medicare and change from reciprocal cover, find out about childcare as have 3 year old in nursery, is this through Centrelink? I'm confused about Centrelink and medicare, are they the same?

 

Change private health cover.... Anything else? Breathe?!

 

Thanks!

Medicare and centre link are seperate but, are now usually in the same building / office. Centrelink will cover benefits such as child care rebate but you will have to speak to Medicare seperately.

If you have not already changed your drivers license then you have three months to obtain a WA one.

Lit is worth telling your bank and any finance companies.

Thanks guys, very helpful.

 

Verystormy, you were also one of the first to give advice back in early 2014 when we were just dreaming about moving here. Thanks for all your help :-)
