[size=4][/size] Hi all
I am one of the "lucky ones" eligible for the Government's $900 stimulus bonus, was fortunate enough to have put in a Tax return last year, unfortunately lost my job in November last year and due to circumstances beyond my control had to apply for Centrelink benefits. They have put me on Newstart (I am 63 yrs old), and have now sent me to a Job network where I have to attend everyday to learn how to write a resume, how to get a job, how to keep a job etc.etc.
Mind you the average age of the rest of the class is approx. 20 years old. I have not minded it too much as number one it gets me out and about and talking to people, I enjoy talking to young people and number two You can still teach old dogs new tricks.
Anyway back to the original discussion thread, has anyone else who was eligible for the $900 received it yet, as I do not know one person from this side of Australia to the other side that has actually received it yet.
The Tax office said that they will be rolling it out over a period of weeks by random postcodes etc. so here's hoping that they are not going by suburbs as mine starts with "W" so looks like I will have to wait till the end date of 16th May before I can start stimulating the economy by paying my bills. lol
Love to hear from anyone who has actually received it and how are people thinking of using it.
Have a great day
