    I'm pretty sure at some stages the amount you can earn does go up before your payment is affected (just can't remember if it is every year or not??)

    I don't think you taking your holidays counts as paid maternity leave Lorin.

    Kylie if I am reading your post correctly (& please let me know if I'm not) you are getting a fortnitely payment for the child you already have, when this baby is born I would expect that your payment may rise to a higher fortnitely amount due to the second child. Do you know what part of the family tax you are getting?? Do you get part A & part B or just part B?

    It does sound right, Part A is determined by your partners income & Part B is determined by your income.

    As an example, this financial year (2005-2006) my DH earnt $75,000 so we weren't eligible to receive any of the Part A entitlement, but I estimated my income to be $10,200 & I received just over $70 a fortnite for James.

    It's just so damn confusing trying to work this stuff out!
    Just remember that if you have a reduced benefit due to over estimating your possible income, or if you don't end up going back to work, you can claim FTB in a lump sum after you have done your tax returns. That way you get a nice big bonus.

    That is exactly what is going to happen here Sammi, coz I estimated $10,200 but in reality only earnt about $6,000 (because of the time off with Thomas' pregnancy complications & subsequent stillbirth) I'm gonna get a nice little boost to my tax return.
