Child Care Subsidy
From 2 July 2018, Child Care Subsidy replaced the two other child care payments.
To apply for Child Care Subsidy you will be asked to provide Centrelink with some information and confirm your current details, including:
1. Combined family income
2. Activity level of parents
3. Type of child care service
The Package includes a new Child Care Subsidy, which replaces the previous Child Care Benefit and Child Care Rebate. The Child Care Subsidy is paid directly to services. Three things will determine a family’s level of Child Care Subsidy:
A family’s annual adjusted taxable income will determine the percentage of subsidy they are eligible for
An activity test will determine how many hours of subsidised care families can access, up to a maximum of 100 per fortnight, and
The type of child care service will determine the hourly rate cap.
Some basic requirements must be satisfied for an individual to be eligible to receive Child Care Subsidy for a child.
the age of the child (must be 13 or under and not attending secondary school)
the child meeting immunisation requirements
the individual, or their partner, meeting the residency requirements.
