Dealing with Government Institutes such as Centrelink
“I had been living and working in Australia for many years when I was diagnosed with MS. I continued to work until my condition made it impossible for me to continue. I applied for a disability pension through Centrelink, which I received for some time, until it was suddenly stopped and repayment demanded for benefits already paid. This was all because of my Canadian Super which had been commuted to Australia. It was a terrible, stressful time in my life and I was at a loss as to what to do. Gina was wonderful, she assured me that she would help resolve the situation. It took many, many months and much communication backwards and forwards. Centrelink adamant they were right and Gina adamant they were wrong. Eventually the case went before the ATO, the ombudsman and then to Canberra, where the decision was overturned. Centrelink had to admit they were wrong and my disability pension was re-instated. Thanks to Gina’s dogged determination and persistence she was able to achieve what I thought would be the impossible! She certainly knows her stuff and I would not hesitate to recommend her services to anyone!!!”
