Payment options for Child Care Benefit
You can choose how your Child Care Benefit is paid.
Depending on the type of care your child is in, you might need to meet an income test.

We will use your adjusted taxable income to assess your eligibility for some payments, supplements, support and benefits.
Work, Training, Study test
The number of hours for which you can receive Child Care Benefit depends on whether you and your partner meet the Work, Training, Study test.
Absences and Child Care Benefit
Your Child Care Benefit may still be paid if you're charged for child care when your child is absent.

When you enrol your child in a Child Care Benefit approved child care service, you'll need to provide them with information to identify your family.
