What does a certified copy mean?
The document is a true copy of the original and has been sighted by an acceptable person. To have a document certified, you should take the original and a copy to an authorised person. The person must then write on every page of copied document: "I have sighted the original document and certify this to be a true copy of the original." (sample statement)
The person should sign each statement and provide their designation, for example, "Pharmacist."
What type of Centrelink statement can I provide?
Please provide a current (no more than a month old) Centrelink Income Statement. The statement should show:
On-line payment history reports printed directly from the Centrelink website are not acceptable documentation.
I download my Centrelink Income Statement directly from the Centrelink website. What should I send?
If you don't receive a hard-copy Centrelink Income Statement you can forward a copy of your current PDF statement provided by Centrelink directly to firstname.lastname@example.org. The PDF must be the original downloaded from the Centrelink website. Please don't print and scan the document.
Please ensure that the statement displays the required information detailed above.
I only have a Health Care Card, will this do?
Yes, a certified copy of your Health Care Card can also be used as supporting documentation.
I don't have/can't find my Centrelink Income Statement?
Please call your Centrelink adviser and ask for a new Centrelink Income Statement to be sent. Please ensure you allow sufficient time to provide the statement to the Scholarships Office before the specified deadline. Alternatively log into the Centrelink website and request a new Centrelink Income Statement.
