    Default Family Assistance and not working

    Hi everyone,


    DF is changing jobs and will be getting more then both of us combined at the moment. SO i am thinking of leaving my job to be a full time stay at home mum.
    I have just been on the centrelink online calculator and not sure when it says taxable income do i put in $0? As i am looking in to the future at the moment once 2013 tax time has been. I tried with Dfs fortnightly income and i am not entitled to Parenting Payment Partnered. So my taxable income will only be what have earned in the last few months so do i just place that in seems i will not be entitled to any PPP.

    So i am looking for nows including the last few months i have been working and i am also looking at next years just to work out if we would be better off yearly with me working and placing the kids in to child care or staying home

    Thanks in advance everyone

    You won't get parenting payment partnered. Pop your income in for this financial year along with your hubbies estimated income and that will tell you how much FTB part a and b you will get. For next financial year just don't touch the your income slot or it can crack the saddies just pop your partners income in.

    This is from the family assistance office re PPP

    Income test—partnered parents
    Partner gets a pension
    For maximum payment, your combined income must be no more than $124 per fortnight.

    Your combined income reduces your payment by 25 cents for each dollar between $124 and $500, and by 30 cents for each dollar above $500 per fortnight.

    For part payment, your combined income must be less than $1660.00 per fortnight.
