Services Australia is about to start balancing Family Tax Benefit (FTB) and Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for around 2.2 million families.
What is balancing
If you get Family Tax Benefit fortnightly, the amount you’re paid during the year is based on your family income estimate.
Thousands of families are running out of time to claim government assistance for the 2017-18 financial year.
As families across the country head back to school, the Department of Human Services is reminding those receiving family payments to be prepared for the year ahead.
