Child Care Rebate quarterly payments are coming soon

3 January 2018

If you get Child Care Rebate quarterly, we’ll start making October to December payments from 17 January 2018.

You don’t need to do anything. We’ll pay you automatically if you’re eligible.

If you haven’t received your payment by Friday 2 February 2018, check we’ve issued the payment and your bank account details are correct. You can do this with:

You won’t receive a payment if we paid your Child Care Rebate to you or your child care service throughout the quarter. This is because you’ve already received your payments. If this is the case, you’ll only receive a statement.

Next steps

If you don’t have a myGov account, it’s easy to create one and link your Centrelink online account.
