Payment options

We’ll pay these to you based on your payment choice for Family Tax Benefit (FTB) Part A.

When FTB Part A is claimed fortnightly

If you choose to get FTB Part A or the base rate fortnightly, you’ll get both:

  • Newborn Upfront Payment as a lump sum
  • Newborn Supplement with your regular FTB Part A payment.

If you claim FTB Part A fortnightly at a zero rate, you’ll get both payments after the end of the financial year when we balance your payments.
