    Default Nov/Dec Baby Bonus Family Tax Benefit

    Has anyone who had their baby in november or december 2011 lodged their claim for baby bonus and family tax benefit?

    Have you received either payment yet? If yes how long did you have to wait?

    I did 3 years ago with DD1 - lodged it mid november and got it the week before Christmas. I wasn't on the system though and apparently they were having some sort of technical/processing difficulties at the time.

    My bub was born on the 14th, and I lodged on the 29th. I was told there wold be a 6-8 week processing time, but today was my regular payment day for FTB, and I received more than usual. They generally send a letter to advise you of what your payments will be if they change, but it hasn't arrived yet.

    Yea I lodged mine on the 30th and was told 21days for baby bonus....I'm not in a rush for that but it would be nice to know when my FTB payments will be adjusted as that adjustment would come in handy right now

    Well, the amount I received was a lot more than usual, but not enough to be my adjusted FTB and first BB payment, so I have no idea how they have calculated the amount...
    Waiting for the letter so I can figure it out!

    I'm pretty sure you get 2x bb payments and also the FTb now? Think I read that somewhere you get an 800 odd amount payment from the bb (which would be 2 payments?)
