    Default New $$ for low & middle & school june 30

    So priminister was on b105 this morning an annonunced that parents will recieve $400 for primary students and $800 for highschool students every year before term 1 and 3 and that we can expect the first payment by june 30.

    She didnt quite say wether that was to start this year she just said june 30.

    Also, now this may be getting approval or has been approved, im not 100% sure but from the way she was talking it sounds as though its been approved that family payments are going UP.

    She said for parent with 2 kids on maxium benifits the family payment would be increased by another $600.
    And means tested.
    Correct me if im wrong - just going by what she said this morning.

    Its all to help lowering the cost of raising kids.

    On another note she said she will be voting against same sex marriage but all those in her labour team will have the opportunity to vote on it with their own opinion.

    Barack obama hower supports same sex marrige!

    The increased centrelink payments are to offset the effect of the carbon tax for low to low-middle income earners.

    The school kids payment is to replace the current education tax rebate. You can get the money without keeping receipts.
