Time’s almost up to claim Family Tax Benefit (FTB) as a lump sum

20 April 2020

If you don’t claim FTB for the 2018-19 financial year by 30 June 2020, you’ll miss out.

If you already got FTB for the whole financial year, you don’t need to claim again.

You only need to claim if both of the following apply:

  • you didn’t get FTB for some, or all of 2018-19 financial year
  • you think you should have.

The simplest and best way to claim FTB is online using your Centrelink online account through myGov.

Make sure you submit your claim by 30 June 2020. You’ll also need to confirm your income by then. If you have a partner, they need to confirm their income too.

Call the families line if there are special circumstances stopping you, or your partner, from doing this before the deadline.
