If you are in a relationship, married, de facto, or separated by illness, Centrelink will view you as a couple and need to know both your financial and personal details. This is the same even if only one member of the couple is applying. PensionHelp will be required to process a higher amount of data to complete your service.
In simple terms it’s part of Centrelink’s asset and income test when determining your entitlement. If you are not sure, please contact email@example.com or answer the following questions.
