How much you can get
Each year you can get up to $1,000 for each child who qualifies for Carer Allowance.
If you are getting Carer Allowance for 2 children, you will get 2 payments.
If you share care for the child
If you get a part rate of Carer Allowance under shared care arrangements, you’ll also get a part rate of this payment. The ratio will be the same.
If you’re on income management
This payment will be fully income managed.
Call the Disability, Sickness and Carers Line if you need to discuss your payment.
