Hi there, we moved to Australia 4 years ago and never applied for permanent residence. My husband was made redundant 8 months ago and that's when we were made aware that there is no help for NZ citizens from Centerlink.
I was wondering, is there any way to get help from Work and Income in NZ while we reside in OZ?
Also, are there any other benefits - like help with power bills etc that we could apply to get from Centerlink?
I could not find more information and it just doesn't feel right. To be able pay the bills I got a second job, but now my tax is sky high.
