Booking an appointment

Minister for Government Services, Senator the Hon Linda Reynolds CSC said the upgrade reflects the government's commitment to transforming and modernising services.

"Customers can book appointments for Centrelink services at the upgraded service centre. Customers are encouraged to complete their Centrelink and Medicare business online if they're able, but Services Australia staff are still available for those who need extra support." Minister Reynolds said.

Providing options for locals

Federal Member for Gippsland Darren Chester welcomed the transformation, which will give Bairnsdale residents access to state-of-the-art government services. To book an appointment for Centrelink services, customers can call their regular payment line, or visit the service centre and return at a time that suits them.

"These improvements put the community at the heart of government services and provide locals with options to do their business with Services Australia in ways that best suit their needs," Mr Chester said.

Work on the Bairnsdale Service Centre will take place after hours to minimise disruption, with the service centre continuing to operate Monday to Friday from 8.30 am to 4.30 pm.
