    Default Childcare Benefit Question

    Hi all
    I am just about to change jobs where I am working less hours. Now the kids will be attending care only two days a week. I will now only be working 14 hours a week. So does that now affect my ccb? DH still works 38 hours a week. Does it matter that I work under 15 hours. Do they consider our incomes separately or combined

    It shouldn't affect your CCB but you will no longer receive the rebate which is the painful one to lose

    As far as I know, you wont be entitled.
    As my husband works full time, im going back to work but because its over the 12 months im not entitled to a cent before I go back to work. So for the two weeks that she is going 3 days to
    ease her in, im paying without ccb

    I get confused which one is CCB and which is CCR, we only get the one that isn't means tested, but you can have 2 days a week of that without working at all, and can only have more than 2 days if you work more than 16 hrs a week. I'm not sure if that was your question though.

    But she's not coming off maternity leave? Her CCB should remain the same if not more because she is earning less.

    Didn't there used to be a user on here that came on and answered centrelink questions, or did I dream/imagine that?

    Aw bugger. Just replied to the wrong damn thing.

    What I said was that I did a quick comparison on the Centrelink website with what our household income would be if I was on 14hrs/wk & DH full time and it still said I was entitled to both the CCB & CCR.

    So check out the calculator. Should give you a rough estimate of what you'll be entitled to rather than having to wait on the phone.
