It’s time to update your income details

It’s time to update your income details so your dependent child’s youth payment doesn’t stop.

If your dependent child is getting Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY Living Allowance, it’s time to update your income details.

If you need to update your income details, we’ll send you or your child a letter in late September or early October. You can update your income details using the one time access code in the letter or using your Centrelink online account through myGov.

If the letter is lost, you can still update your income details online through myGov.

This year we’ll also ask about any maintenance income payments you get.

You need to update your details even if you’ve recently done this for another child or payment. Your child’s payment will stop if we don’t get this information on time.
