Anyway to Expedite Centrelink Application Processing?

I've applied for a Centrelink payment due to significant cut in hours at work, and the estimated completion date for my claim is 28 April 2020. I submitted the claim on 17 March meaning this is almost a month and a half. The Centrelink website states the maximum waiting time is 21 days so this is quite extreme, and my hours have been cut by over 60% so this payment would be extremely helpful at the moment. If anyone has any advice it would be greatly appreciated, thanks all

Edit: Is it possible to apply for both Youth Allowance for job seekers and students? As I meet the eligibility for both. This claim was for students
