If you have a HELP (Higher Education Loan Program) or HECS (Higher Education Contribution Scheme) debt, you could still benefit from salary packaging - regardless of whether you are making repayments or receiving Centrelink support.
In fact, salary packaging could help you pay off HELP or HECS debt sooner.
It doesn't matter how much or how little you earn. Even on an income of $35,000 a year, you could save up to $1,300 a year.
Before you commence salary packaging, you will need to tell your payroll department to take additional HELP or HECS repayments from your salary, otherwise you may end up with a bill at tax time. It's also a good idea to seek financial advice before entering into or changing a salary package arrangement.
