How to manage your payment
Your options and obligations for ABSTUDY.
How much you or your partner earn affects your payment. We need to know what you both earn so we pay the right amount.
We may send a letter to your myGov inbox asking you to do an online review of your study details.
If you're dependent and get Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY, we may need your parents’ or guardians’ income details each year.
There are rules about when you can get ABSTUDY when you travel outside Australia.
Some people can get income support payments paid each week instead of each fortnight.
You may get part of your income support payment or Family Tax Benefit (Part A) early. This is an advance payment. You pay it back later out of your payments from us.
