Welcome to Social Security Debt Help

Social Security Debt Help is a free resource to help you understand Centrelink debts. That could be a debt you’ve been asked to repay, or a debt you are helping someone else with.

Social Security Debt Help provides information about debts, how to challenge debts if you disagree with them, and how to manage paying them back.

Centrelink debts can be complex. If you decide to challenge a debt there are risks you need to be aware of. We recommend seeking legal advice before challenging a Centrelink debt.

Social Security Debt Help is a project of Social Security Rights Victoria, and can be used by anyone in Australia.
