    Default What happened to my ftb b?

    I was getting ftb a and b. When I finished work I updated my income estimate, and the amount of both decreased because of my new estimate. I got one payment of this new amount. Next payment I only got ftb a, and was even less, this payment was after Quark was born, so I assumed they withheld the ftb b until all the paperwork went though. I Put all the paperwork through, and my forecast payment for this fortnight includes newborn payment and ftb a. But still no ftb b. I understand you can't get ftb b when you get paid parental leave, but I'm not getting that cause I am getting newborn bonus.
    Any ideas??

    FTB B is based on the lower income earners income amount. Depending on what that is you may not be entitled.

    The only amounts i can find is if lower income earner earns over about $5200, which i did, but i was recieving ftb before when i was.. and we absolutely dont earn anywhere near thw 150000 cut off..
    Just hope my getting it before wasnt a mistake and i have to pay it back...

    I could be wrong (and probably am) but I thought ftb b only applied if it was a single income family?

    Yep it's for the lowest income. Not single income.

    I can never understand Family Tax or Centrelink so I always call them and get them to explain it to me. Good luck working it out

    After the $5200 ftb b starts to reduce by 40 cents in the dollar eventually cutting out. If you have a child under 5 I think around $25000....
