Get Youth Allowance as a job seeker?

14 September 2017

We may need your parents’ or guardians’ income details to check if you’re still eligible for your payment.

We need your parents’ or guardians’ income details if you get:

  • dependent Youth Allowance as a job seeker, and
  • a letter from us in September or early October

If you get the letter asking for your parents’ or guardians’ income details, give it to them straight away.

Tell them to follow the instructions in the letter.

We’ll stop your payment if your parents or guardians don’t update their income details by the end of October.

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

If you have questions, ask us on social media. Connect with us on our Student Update Facebook page or tweet us @StudentUpdateAU
