    If you receive FTB A and/or B it is something like $700/child and $300/family, or the other way round. They pay it at tax time or keep it of you've been overpaid throughout the year.

    Someone can correct me but I know as a single mum I get just over $1000 from Centrelink at tax time and it's FTB based, not pension. HTH.

    Another question.. Is it only if you earn under a certain amount? I get full rates of A & B, hoping my estimate is correct eep.

    I think it depends, DP and I are just under this amount but because we both earn incomes we aren't entitled to FTB. We won't get supplements but I'll be getting a tax return which will be good

    If you owe centrelink money and are paying it off every fortnight you still get the supp!!
    I owe them money ( totally their fault) and pay them back every fortnight and still get my supp every year!!

    This confuses me. A 2 parent family where one is on $148k (think that's it for 1 child) can receive FTB and the supplements, but a 2 parent family where both earn the same amount equalling $148k get nothing, yet with both working they have to pay childcare whereas with 1 working they save on childcare. I've never understood that. Also most need a second car if both are working.

    I always thought that this was unfair (particularly as we both work so are ineligible for part b, despite not actually earning that much), however somebody explained that part b is to counter the fact that if both partners work, they both get the benefit of the tax free threshold and lower marginal rates, so part b is an equalisation measure for one income family versus two income families.
