Extension Granted!

Ladies and Gentlemen, some good news: Centrelink have decided to extend the contracts of all temps until mid-August! Which is bloody marvellous; takes quite a bit of pressure off, thank you!

The good bit is, I'll actually have something new to do. In addition to starting people on claims for looking-for-work payments, we're being trained in advances; i.e. determining whether people on existing payments are entitled to gettign some of their pay advanced to them. It's more like a loan, as they have to pay it back in installments across twelve months (the installments are deducted from their regular pays). Thankfully, the process is largely computerised, but it'll be a break in the sort-of monotony.
