You adopt a child

If you're adopting a child, you may be eligible for Newborn Upfront Payment and Newborn Supplement.

This is if both of the following apply:

  • the child of any age is placed in your or your partner's care by an authorised party as part of the adoption process
  • you become eligible for FTB Part A within 12 months of the child coming into your or your partner's care.
