How to manage your allowance

Your options and obligations for ABSTUDY School Term Allowance.

School absences

Your child’s school lets us know if your child has attended school for at least 85% of the previous term. If there’s a good reason for your child missing school, you must tell the school.

If you get School Term Allowance, you also need to tell us about changes to your and your child’s circumstances.
