If you get dependant Youth Allowance or ABSTUDY Living Allowance, we might send you a letter asking for these details.
When we’ll ask for your parental income details
You’ll get the letter in September or October.
If you don’t get a letter, you don’t need to do anything. We’ve already got all the information we need.
Why we need them
We use your parents’ or guardians’ income every year to check:
- you’re still eligible for your payment, and
- we’re paying you the right amount
How to give them to us
Ask your parents or guardians to follow the instructions in your letter. This is the easiest way to give us the information.
What happens if you don’t 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.
Where to get more information
Do the parental income test reassessment if you got the letter.
