The class action settlement approval hearing has finished. We’re now waiting for the Court’s decision.
You may get it if you’re the primary carer of a newly adopted child. Or, if you’re in the process of adopting a child.
If you didn’t get FTB during the 2019-20 financial year, you can claim it as a lump sum.
We need it so you get the right amount of Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS) next financial year.
So you don’t fall behind, we’ll help you work out the best payment method for you.
