Update your child's education details

Schoolkids Bonus was phased out in July 2016. You may have missed the last payments if your child’s details weren’t up to date.

If you were eligible but didn't get the final payments in January and July 2016, your child’s education details may have been out of date on our records. You can update them now using your Centrelink online account.

You didn't need to update your child’s education details at the end of each school year.

You only needed to update your child’s education details when they:

  • started primary school
  • started secondary school, or
  • finished secondary school

There are time limits to update these details and still get Schoolkids Bonus. Read more about notification time limits.
