Do you receive Child Care Rebate quarterly?

10 April 2018

You’ll receive your payment for January to March 2018 between 18 April and 1 May 2018.

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

If you haven’t received the payment by Friday 4 May 2018, you should check your payment history to see if it’s been issued. You should also check your bank account details are correct. You can do this using:

You won’t receive a payment if your Child Care Rebate payments were paid to you or the 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. 

Changes to child care assistance

The next quarter, April to July 2018, will be the last quarter you can receive Child Care Rebate.

The new Child Care Subsidy will start on 2 July 2018. This will replace the current child care payments, including Child Care Rebate.
