    Default When Centrelink stops parenting payment

    My youngest will be turning 6 later next year.
    I'm receiving FTB A and B from centrelink.
    Does centrelink stop paying once my child turns 6? Do they stop paying all together or do they drop my payments?

    Just need to start thinking about returning to work or study

    It's when your youngest child turns 8 that you are put onto newstart. But they will expect you to be studying now I think or doing something towards getting a job.

    6 if you are partnered and 8 if you are single. I think in both instances you are pushed onto newstart as a job seeker. Your payments aren't completely stopped.

    Didn't even notice it was in regards to FTB.. oops!
    FTB B is reduced when your youngest turns 5, but definitely isn't cut off completely.

    Single parents get a drop of around $150 per fortnight once going onto Newstart

    Sometimes it's a lot more than that if you have a large family
