The Single Income Family Supplement is an additional payment of up to $300 for middle income families with a dependent child or children and with one primary earner whose income is between $68,000 and $150,000. If there is a secondary earner in the family, their income needs to be below $18,000.
Payments will be available from 1 July 2013.
Eligible customers who are in receipt of Family Tax Benefit will not need to apply for the Single Income Family Supplement as the payment will be calculated based on circumstances known for Family Tax Benefit purposes and will be included in their entitlement at the end of the year. Eligible customers who are not in receipt of Family Tax Benefit will need to apply to receive this payment.
