Claiming a student payment: why getting in early pays off

31 October 2018

You can reap the benefits of claiming your student payment early. So why wait?

Getting up early to see a sunrise or getting some early Christmas shopping done is worth the effort.

The same goes for your student payment.

If you’re doing full time study or an Australian Apprenticeship next year you can benefit from doing your claim early.

You can prepare and submit your claim for Youth Allowance or Austudy up to 13 weeks before you start studying.

Get your claim sorted before the start of the school year. If you’re eligible this could mean you’ll have your student payment ready to go when you need it.

We have information on How to claim Youth Allowance and How to claim Austudy to help you through your claim.

Just like the pre-release of the latest smart phone, you don’t want to miss out. Put your claim in now.
