How you can receive Newborn Upfront Payment and Newborn Supplement

We’ll pay these to you based on your payment choice for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A.

When FTB Part A is claimed fortnightly

If you choose to receive FTB Part A or the base rate fortnightly, you’ll receive:

  • Newborn Upfront Payment as a lump sum, and
  • Newborn Supplement with your regular FTB Part A payment

If you claim FTB Part A fortnightly at a zero rate, you’ll receive both payments after the end of the financial year when we balance your payments.
