    Default Budget announcement for families?

    Just wondering if anyone can tell me? The payment that was announced in the budget for families who receive FTb a, will we still be eligible if I over estimated our income?

    I purposely overestimated our income this year as last year we were overpaid. This has meant we haven't received any fortnightly payments. However as I overestimated by about $20000 we would have been eligible for around $30 a fortnight in FTb a that we will obviously get on reconciliation at the end of the financial year, will we still get the bonus if we currently aren't receiving any?

    Thanks. I was going to ring centrelink for this and ppl progress but the wait is 90 minutes!

    I think you will get it with your normal top up at tax time.

    I would assume they will send it to you after they reconcile at the end of financial year. It might pay to give them a call though (perhaps another day when the wait isn't so long!), but I think logically that's what will happen.
