Schoolkids Bonus payments will go ahead in January 2014
Tuesday 17 December 2013
Parliament is yet to pass legislation to abolish the Schoolkids Bonus. This means the Schoolkids Bonus will be paid to eligible families and students in January 2014. Payment of future instalments of the Schoolkids Bonus, including July 2014, will depend on whether the legislation is passed by Parliament in 2014.
Families and students who receive fortnightly payments will be paid the Schoolkids Bonus from 3–17 January 2014.
Please wait until after 20 January 2014 to contact us if you haven’t received the Schoolkids Bonus - make sure you check your eligibility first.
If you claim Family Tax Benefit as a lump sum at the end of the financial year, you will be paid the Schoolkids Bonus, if you’re eligible, after we assess your claim and after you lodge a tax return.
If you receive an education allowance from the Department of Veterans’ Affairs, they will pay your Schoolkids Bonus on 20 January 2014.
