It may be time for your child to get a health check

11 January 2022

If your child is turning 4, they may need to have a health check. This is so you know your child is healthy, fit and ready to learn when they start school.

Your child may need to have a health check if both of these apply:

  • your child is turning 4
  • you or your partner get Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A and an income support payment.

If your child doesn’t have a health check, your FTB Part A rate may reduce.

We’re sending out reminders through your myGov inbox or by mail. We’ll let you know what you need to do before it affects your payments.
