Most Centrelink staff are decent people, your normal aussie human just trying to get along with living under the yoke of extremely evil policies. Most Centrelink staff have mortgages and thus are genuinely slaves to keeping their jobs. And boy, do they see the risk of harm to their welfare everyday! If centrelink staff don’t obey the evil bureaucratic immoral polices of obstructionism, then you can bet those staff will quickly find themselves on the other side of the counter looking for work themselves. And since they see the suffering of the citizens on a minute by minute basis, they are highly motivated to express the ausgov immoral polices, to the letter, in triplicate, and then checked by a queens counsel so that they don’t have to hand in their keycard and step in line themselves for the proctological examination just to get into the foyer.
Multiple medical people I talk with describe the disability service pension application process as extremely difficult, overly cruel, anxiety inducing, uncaring of genuine welfare, incredibly long and difficult, obstructionist, and ultimately degrading to the disabled humans whom are already suffering from their disability.
Mental health patients have it even worse, they are frequently confused, misguided and led around through vast numbers of highly difficult paperwork processes – each process designed with only one outcome as the true aim, denial of disability service pension. If there are 100 questions on the form and 99 of them meet the requirements for the applicant to be given disability service pension immediately, then you can bet your whole house that the single 1 requirement that is not met will suddenly become the most important requirement of them all.
Application denied at this time, please fuck off... or maybe…
Application still in process, please wait for a random appointment with an unidentified stranger at a mandated time, in the mandated way and we will attempt to deny your application again at that time. Fuck off.
