We’ll pay these to you based on your payment choice for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A.
When FTB Part A is claimed fortnightly
If you choose to get FTB Part A or the base rate fortnightly, you’ll get both:
- Newborn Upfront Payment as a lump sum
- Newborn Supplement with your regular FTB Part A payment.
If you claim FTB Part A fortnightly at a zero rate, you’ll get both payments after the end of the financial year when we balance your payments.
