Your payment may stop soon

Your Youth Allowance payment will stop if your parents or guardians haven’t updated their income details.

Your Youth Allowance may stop this month if you’re a dependant and your parents or guardians haven’t updated their income details.

We sent you a letter in late September or early October to give to your parents or guardians. It asked them to update their income details. If they haven’t updated their income, remind them now.

They can update their income details online using their Centrelink online account through myGov, even if you’ve lost the letter we sent you.

If they don’t have a Centrelink online account, they can go to myGov to create one.

Updating their details now will prevent your payment stopping.
