What is your combined family income that you report to Centrelink, rounded to the nearest $5,000?

Family income for Centrelink purposes includes reportable Fringe Benefits, superannuation contributions that are salary sacrificed, total net investment losses, Disability, Carers or Wifes Pensions, and less and Child Support you pay.

On average, how long do your children spend in long day care each day?

What are the hours of ‘recognised activity’ typically undertaken each fortnight by the parent who does the least?

NOTE: ‘Recognised Activity’ includes work, study, training, looking for a job, paid and unpaid leave, travelling to and from work, lunch breaks, unpaid work in a family business, setting up a business, work experience and volunteering in the community. If your work is casual or irregular, you should report the maximum number of hours you expect in the next three months, rather than the average. Remember, activity is determined on the parent that is doing the least in the household.

Your Subsidy Estimation

Remember, this is an estimate only. Changes to centre fees, the law, policy or your individual circumstances may mean that any Child Care Subsidy you actually become entitled in 2018-19 differs from the amount estimated. The Government will also withhold 5 per cent of your Child Care Subsidy entitlement each week to help ensure that you do not incur a debt due to overpayment.
