Sorry, I don't usually reply to these types of threads but I must say I do find it a bit frustrating when people whinge about their financial situation when they are receiving a couple of hundred dollars a week in FTB. What more do you expect from the government?
As others have pointed out with govt payments it seems you are getting cash in hand a reasonable amount to support a family.
If you desire more income earn it as everyone else does. While I understand venting about the rising costs of living, I am struggling to understand where this sense of entitlement to government funds comes from.
