Claim ABSTUDY for 2018 now!

31 October 2017

Claim before December so your payments are in place before school starts. This is especially important if you’re moving away from home to study.

ABSTUDY helps Indigenous Australians with the costs of studying or doing an Australian Apprenticeship.

Claiming early and having your payments in place before school starts is important – it helps you plan for the school year.

If you need to move away from home to study, getting claims in early is especially important. This gives us time to organise your ABSTUDY Fares Allowance travel.

We’ve made claiming over the phone quicker and easier. You can now do more of your claim at the one time by confirming what you’ve told us is true and correct. You’ll only need to return a paper form if your information isn’t correct or you need to advise of changes.  We’ll also let you know if you need to provide any additional supporting documents.
