Give us your parental income details so your payment doesn’t stop

1 October 2018

If you get Youth Allowance as a job seeker, we may have asked you for your parents’ or guardians’ income details.

If you got a letter from us asking for these details, it’s important you give them to us.

If we don’t get your parental income details by the due date in your letter, we’ll stop your payment.

The easiest way to give us this information is to ask your parents or guardians to do this online. There are instructions in your letter.

If you’ve lost your letter, you can view your Centrelink letters online:

If you don’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 by the due date in your letter.
