Long time no see tongue.gif

Quick one.

We received a LARGE payment into our account today from the FAO and when I checked the FAO site and our payments it said "arrears payment of RCN"

Obviously it is backpay of some sort, but for the life of me I don't know what RCN is?!

Anyone?!

TIA

no idea, but could it be a rebate on child care or that immunisation thing? I wouldn't spend it until you know for sure. Ring them on Monday and ask, otherwise, does it tell you if you log into the centreline website?

Nothing like unexpected money though!

I applied for the Immunisation thingy yesterday, so can't imagine it would come through that quick! All it says on my online services is "arrears for payment of RCN"

Oh I so want to spend it! tongue.gif

I'm not sure what RCN stands for, but last week I got some money from the FAO because I overestimated my income for the 2010/2011 financial year. It could be this?

The money went into our account a day or two before we got the letter explaining what the money was for, so I guess you should receive notice shortly explaining what the extra cash is from.

Do you use online services? In your payment history it will tell you what its for. Thats where I got this RCN from!

Reconciliation. So they've been underpaying you, and are paying you back what you're owed smile.gif

That would totally make sense! I can't believe I did not think of that! tongue.gif

I am still afraid to use it. Its not often I get big chucks of money like this!


Apparently in the paper today there was a lady who was overpaid and instead of getting $2000 she got $2mil! hahaha ,so she spent it... blink.gif ohmy.gif Idiot!

Ah, reconciliation would make a lot more sense than what I could find "Raising Children Network" laugh.gif

It really would make more sense to send the letter and say that within 7 days you will receive funds, rather than the other way around.

I always have the best luck if I ring at 8am on the dot (or whenever they open).
