Change of circumstances while receiving Youth Allowance

If you do not tell us when your circumstances change, you may be doing the wrong thing.

Doing the right thing is easy:

It is never too late to report a change. By telling us about any changes today, we can help make sure you receive the correct payment.

If you have received payments you are not eligible for, you may have to repay the amount. Having to repay a debt may be difficult but choosing not to tell us when your circumstances change could lead to far more serious consequences.

If you deliberately do not tell us when your circumstances change, you could be committing fraud.
