FTB when your child stops studying

Your FTB payment will stop when your child reaches a certain age and study level.

If your child is 16 to 19 years of age, your payments will stop:

  • from the date your child stops studying without completing year 12 or an equivalent qualification
  • 28 days after your child completes their year 12 or an equivalent qualification if completed before November
  • on 31 December if your child completes year 12 or an equivalent qualification in November or December, or
  • on 31 December if your child is 19 years of age and still in full time secondary study
