A child comes into your care
If a child comes into your care, for example, through foster care, you may be eligible for Newborn Upfront Payment and Newborn Supplement.
This applies if:
- the child is younger than 1
- you're eligible for FTB Part A
- the child stays in your care for at least 13 continuous weeks from the date you first became eligible for Newborn Supplement.
