Important update about the Schoolkids Bonus

As Parliament is yet to pass the legislation to end the Schoolkids Bonus, the July 2014 instalment will be automatically paid to eligible families and students between 2 and 16 July 2014. Payments should be expected into your bank account on the same day as your regular payment.

Details about the payment won't appear in your Centrelink online account until the day it is paid to you. Read more about this important update.

If your child's or your education details have changed since January 2014, you need to tell us. You can do this through your Centrelink online account, which you can access through myGov.

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 your income has been confirmed.
