    Default FTB part B help!!

    Hi there I'm new to this so sorry if I have posted in the wrong place.
    I wAs just wondering if someone could help me and answer a question I have about the family tax benefit B.

    I'm a single parent and receive both A and B and have just read that as of July 2015 if your youngest child is over 6 part B will get cut and you will receive a yearly lump sun.
    But If you are already on this payment it will continue until 2017.


    My youngest child turns 6 in September 2015... Will I receive part b until 2017 or get the lump sum?

    Thanks for your help!

    I don't know anything about the lump sum but my youngest child turns 6 in April and as far as I'm aware I will continue to get the part B payment fortnightly for another 2 years after she turns 6.

    Just remember none of these changes to FTB etc as proposed by the Abbott Govt. have been passed yet so don't stress too much until we hear more about it, or it has gone through for sure

    I don't think it's been approved yet but if it makes it and gets passed then yes you'll still get payment till 2017

    I'm in same position as well ... If you get the single parenting payment I heard that's a simular thing you will get moved onto looking for work but I'm not sure I need to do more research just trying not to panic myself ... nothing has been approved yet

    I'm single and have worked since my little one was 4 months old.. But shes starting school next year and I'm thinking of leaving work so I can be there for her.. Drop her off and pick her up..I have missed out on so much already and I might never have another one.. My budget will be reAlly tight and that part B would make a massive difference!
    Thank u all so much for your replies.. I'm not up to date with politics :s
    When will I find out if this gets passed or not?

    Yes, you will get moved onto Newstart - there are ways "around" the looking for work thing - for example studying or doing volunteer work.
