How much you can get

You can get $72.60 a fortnight. Double Orphan Pension is a non-taxable payment.

You may get more depending on how much Family Tax Benefit we paid you before the child became an orphan.

We update payment rates on 1 January each year.

To make sure you get the right amount, we review your payment either:

  • every 2 years
  • when your circumstances change.
