My 16 year old niece is wanting to come and live with me and go to school. I live in the city and she lives in the country. She is being bullied at school which is a big reason for leaving and recently lost her dad. My question is about centrelink. Does it get transfered to who ever is looking after the child or is it just up to the mother to pass it on. I have 4 young kids of my own and get ftb. Her mother is unemployed.
