It’s time to update your income details

14 September 2017

We need your income details to make sure your child is still eligible for their payment.

You might need to update your details if your child gets dependent Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY Living Allowance.

We’ll send your child a letter in September or early October telling you what to do.

You won’t need to update your details if:

  • your child doesn’t get a letter, or
  • you or your partner got Family Tax Benefit in the 2016-17 financial year and you’ll get your Notice of Assessment from the ATO by 31 October

You need to update your income details if you won’t get your Notice of Assessment by 31 October.

You can update your details online using

You need to do this for each of your children who get the letter. We’ll stop your child’s payment if you don’t tell us your income details on time.

Ask us your questions on our Family Update Facebook page or tweet us @familyupdateAU
