Hi, I hope this is still current info but from what I remember you can apply before your bub starts daycare. If you know where he is going to go ask them what the full fees costs are because centrelink will ask you for those details. Ummm the CCB percentage is based on yearly income of the household ( both yours + partner) and you should be able to start the ball rolling with your current income details (i think $ from centrelink is included) just mention that your job situation is changing and you will have to contact them when you do start working as your ccb percentage will change a bit. You can apply online if you have a mygov account or ring them, although I wouldn't recommend that if you can avoid it. The CCR is 50% of care costs up to I think around 7500 per kid per year and I dont think income matters for that. Good luck!
