The Schoolkids Bonus helps with education costs and is paid to eligible families in January and July each year. It is important that we have accurate education details for your child so we can pay you the right amount of Schoolkids Bonus. Read more about Schoolkids Bonus.
You do not need to update your child’s education details at the end of each school year, unless your child will not resume that level of education the following year.
This means that you are only required to update your child’s educations details in the following circumstances:
- commencement of primary school
- commencement of secondary school, and
- when a child finishes their secondary education
