    In my experience at work - you have to be on a single parent benefit to get the JET payment...

    Sowwy!

    My friend at uni is married and is eligible for JET. If you search for JET in the search keywords section of centrelink website it brings up a list of things about jet, also the first bit of info in the search gives you a link to the Office of Early Childhood Education & Child Care website, with a section on JET and a fact sheet that is available.

    you have to be on an income support payment long term and using child care while working or studying at least 15 hours per week

    it's paid for a limited time to help you get established...
