We balance your FTB by comparing the amount you were paid with what you were entitled to.
We’ll start balancing FTB for 2021-22 from 4 July 2022.
What you need to do
You may need to confirm your income. You don’t need to call or visit us to do this.
To confirm your income you will need to either:
- lodge your tax return with the Australian Taxation Office
- tell us if you don’t need to lodge a tax return and confirm your income.
If you have a partner, they’ll need to do this too.
If you or your partner don’t need to lodge a tax return, tell us by using either:
What we will do
We will start balancing your FTB once you’ve received your last FTB payment for the 2021-22 financial year and we have all the information we need. We will write to you once it has been completed.
To track your balancing progress, use your Express Plus Centrelink mobile app.
