It’s time for your annual reassessment

It’s annual reassessment time - act now so you don’t lose your payment.

If you’re a dependant and get Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY Living Allowance, it’s time for us to check your parents’ or guardians’ income details.

For this year’s reassessment, we’ll also ask about any maintenance income payments they get.

If they need to update their income details, we’ll send you a letter in September or early October.

What you need to do

Make sure you give your parents or guardians this letter. Ask them to go online to update their details before the deadline in the letter. They can use their Centrelink online account through myGov.

If they don’t have a Centrelink online account, they can go to myGov to create one. Or, they can update their income details using the one time access code in the letter.

They’ll need to update their income details for your payment, even if they’ve already done it for another child or payment.

Your payment will stop if we don’t get this information.
