Carer Adjustment Payment
A one off payment if your child under 7 gets a severe illness or has a major disability.
To get this payment you must provide care full time for a child under 7 and meet other rules.
The most any family can get is $10,000 for each child for one catastrophic event.
We have a range of other services to help you manage your Carer Adjustment Payment, or get extra support.
