How much you can get

You can get $66.10 a fortnight untaxed.

You may get more depending on how much Family Tax Benefit we paid before the child became an orphan.

We update payment rates on 1 January each year.

You may also get the Economic Support Payment. We’ll pay these into your bank account automatically, if you’re eligible.


To make sure you get the right amount, we review your payment either:

  • every 2 years
  • when your circumstances change.
