    Default School start bonus?

    Just a question for the Victorian parents in relation to the EMA and School Start Bonus.

    I filled out the forms and returned them back in December when they were due. Does anyone know when you actually get paid the school start bonus? I have elected for the EMA part to go straight to the school to pay for the books etc but I just wanted to know when the bonus part is likely to be paid.

    thanks

    I'm glad you asked this, I was starting to wonder! I remember from when I recieved it for DS it was paid ridiculously late and I'd already bought the school uniforms! I'm getting mine paid by cheque so will probably get it when school has already gone back.

    From what I was told it is only available now to those eligible for ema, it also can only be paid directly into ur bank account. Starts getting paid after the 20th Jan
    Hth

    I was eligible for the EMA but didn't give my bank details for them to pay the school start bonus into (I don't recall doing it, but that doesn't mean it definitely didn't happen ) Hmm, will wait until school goes back I guess!
