Family Tax Benefit

A 2 part payment that helps with the cost of raising children.

To get this you must:

  • have a dependent child or full time secondary student aged 16 to 19 who isn’t getting a pension, payment or benefit like Youth Allowance
  • care for the child for at least 35% of the time
  • meet an income test.

Read the full conditions under who can get it.
