Balancing your payment

At the end of the financial year we'll balance your family payments.

What this means

This is where we:

  • compare:
    • the income estimate you gave us at the start of the year, and
    • what your family really earned for the year
  • either:
    • pay you a top up if you earned less
    • ask you pay back an overpayment if you earned more

Why you might need to repay Stillborn Baby Payment

You may need to pay it back if:

  • you received this payment under the Family Tax Benefit Part A eligibility test, but
  • at the end of the year we find you weren’t eligible for Family Tax Benefit at the time
