We use your family income estimate to work out how much to pay you.
You should review your family income estimate online anytime there is a change to your income. You can do this online or through the Express Plus Centrelink mobile app, to make sure it’s accurate. This will help you to avoid being overpaid or underpaid.
If the income estimate you give us is too low, you may get a debt when we balance your payments. You’ll have to pay this back.
If it's too high, we may pay you less than you’re entitled to. If this is the case, you may get the amount you missed out on when we balance your FTB and CCS each year.
