What's coming up

You can link many government services to your myGov account.

In this activity, you’ll learn about some of the main services you might like to link, and how myGov can help you with using them, once they are linked. Let’s get started!

Start activity

The Australian Tax Office (ATO)

When you link the ATO to myGov, you can easily do your tax online.

You can also get your notice of tax assessment, plus reminders for any tax you need to pay or any refund you receive.

You can also use myGov and the ATO to double-check you are claiming all your entitlements, such as veterans or seniors tax benefits.

Medicare

With Medicare linked to your myGov account, you can make a Medicare claim, or check your recent Medicare claims.

You can also update some of your personal information and see your past claims, all without having to go into a Medicare office!

My Aged Care

Your My Aged Care account can link to myGov and show you the current details of your personalised client record.

You can also update your client representatives. These are the people you have given permission to view your client record.

My Health Record

After you link your My Health Record to myGov, you’ll be able to see and manage which people have access to your medical and health information, including doctors.

You can also view your pathology reports and get important correspondence from your doctor.

Centrelink and pensions

Centrelink covers a number of services, which can link to your myGov account. For instance, you might like to use Centrelink to get updates on aged pension entitlements and payments.
