The Social Services & Child Support Division of the AAT (the SSCS Division) can review most Centrelink or child support decisions made by an officer of the Department of Human Services if the decision has first been reviewed internally. This usually means that you have received a decision from either an Authorised Review Officer (ARO) in relation to a Centrelink decision or an Objections Officer in relation to a child support decision. The decision of the Authorised Review Officer or Objections Officer should state whether it is reviewable by the AAT.
We can only review a decision if the law states that an application can be made to the AAT. Decisions which could be reviewed in the former Social Security Appeals Tribunal are now reviewed by the Social Services & Child Support Division of the AAT.
A review undertaken in this Division is called an "AAT first review" of a Centrelink or child support decision.
You can make an application for a first review of a Centrelink or child support decision online as well as upload documents in support of your application.
You can also apply for a review by filling out an application form, calling us or visiting a registry in person. For information about making an application, visit the Applying for a review page of our website.
