Will this affect my Centrelink entitlements?

You are only entitled to receive payments of compensation from one source and therefore, you are not entitled to “double dip” by receiving both Comcare wage compensation in addition to Centrelink unemployment benefits.

 If Comcare denies liability for your claim, though later retracts their position, you may be entitled to a “back payment" of wage compensation accruing from the date of your injury, until the acceptance of liability. If over this period you were receiving Centrelink unemployment benefits, Centrelink may apply for an adjustment by recovering a proportion of your wage compensation.
