Soon, when you access Centrelink, Medicare and Child Support services through myGov, you‘ll notice some changes.
Services Australia has announced a range of changes coming to the myGov website in September.
The changes include:
A new look, layout and colour
A personalised homepage that makes it easier for you to see messages and linked services in one place
Information about government payments and services organised by major events in your life
How will the changes affect me?
Services Australia stressed that Aussies accessing their myGov services would not need to do anything differently.
“All your linked myGov services are the same, including your links to Medicare, Centrelink and Child Support. myGov will still be safe and secure.”

The new-look website comes after a range of changes were rolled out from July 1.
