School’s back! Are your child’s education details correct?
1 March 2019
If you’re getting Family Tax Benefit (FTB) for a child 16-19, you might need to update your child’s education details.
If your child’s education details have changed it’s important you let us know. Any changes could affect your FTB.
This is particularly important if your child has finished year 12 or decides not to continue secondary study. If your child is 16 or older and stops studying, your FTB for that child will stop. If you don’t tell us when this happens we may overpay you. If we do, you’ll owe us money which you’ll have to pay back.
What you need to do
Provide us with correct education details for your child.
