Does your child get a payment from us?

3 September 2018

If they get dependent Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY Living Allowance, we may need your income details.

If we need these details, we’ll send your child a letter in September or October. 

We assess your income every year to check:

  • your child is still eligible for their payment, and
  • we’re paying them the right amount

The easiest way to give us your information is to follow the instructions in your child’s letter. 

You need to do this for each child who gets the letter. 

We’ll stop your child’s payment if we don’t get your income details by the due date in your child’s letter.

If your child didn’t get a letter, you don’t need to do anything. We’ve already got all the information we need.

Next steps 

Do the parental income test reassessment if your child got the letter.
