Residents in Lismore now have better access to Centrelink eServices, following a major refurbishment of the local Customer Service Centre.

Minister for Human Services, Senator Joe Ludwig, was joined by Member for Page, Janelle Saffin MP (both pictured), to reopen the centre at 47 Conway Street, Lismore.

“This new-look centre will provide the local community in Lismore with better access to Centrelink services and support,” Senator Ludwig said.

“It offers the full range of Centrelink services for families, seniors, young people, students, jobseekers, people with a disability and carers.

“The centre also gives local residents access to Centrelink’s new e-service arrangements, with eight computers, four telephones and three job-search kiosks for customer use.”

“eServices are a quick and convenient way for Centrelink customers to report, update or simply view their details, potentially skipping long waiting lines.”

Ms Saffin said the newly refurbished centre has been outfitted with the latest technology to meet the growing local demand for better access to government services.

“I encourage people in my local area to make full use of the services being offered by Centrelink at this centre,” Ms Saffin said.

Centrelink has had a presence in the Lismore community for over 10 years.

The centre is located in the Lismore CBD, with car parking and disabled street access. It is also close to suburban bus routes.
