Cen­tre­link of­fice closed

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - NEWS - So­phie Moore

THE Cen­tre­link and Medi­care of­fices in Bel­mont Fo­rum closed on Fe­bru­ary 1.

A pop-up booth of­fer­ing on­line ser­vices has been set up op­po­site Wool­worths in the cen­tre, but peo­ple who need over-the-counter as­sis­tance or face-to-face ap­point­ments will now have to visit the Can­ning­ton Ser­vice Cen­tre on Al­bany High­way.

Shop­ping cen­tre owner Per­ron Group did not ex­tend the Cen­tre­link lease be­cause the cen­tre is un­der­go­ing a $65 mil­lion, 18-month re­de­vel­op­ment.

A Per­ron Group spokesper­son said the plan was to find a new per­ma­nent shopfront for Cen­tre­link in the re­de­vel­oped cen­tre.

Depart­ment of Hu­man Ser­vices gen­eral man­ager Hank Jon­gen said staff could as­sist peo­ple to regis­ter for a myGov ac­count and show them how to ac­cess ser­vices on­line, in­clud­ing Medi­care, Cen­tre­link, child sup­port and the Aus­tralian Tax­a­tion Of­fice, us­ing one lo­gin and pass­word.

“Four self-ser­vice ter­mi­nals will be avail­able in the pop-up lo­ca­tion, where peo­ple can do much of their reg­u­lar Cen­tre­link and Medi­care busi­ness through their on­line ac­count,” he said.

The pop-up shop also has a drop-off box for Medi­care re­bate claims. The ser­vices in Bel­mont Fo­rum will be open Mon­day to Fri­day, 9am to 5pm.

The Can­ning­ton Ser­vice Cen­tre is at 1296 Al­bany High­way, Can­ning­ton.
