    At tax time they will calculate what you should have been getting and pay you what you were untitled too, I over estimated our income a few years ago and wasn't getting very much ftb (I think about $30/fn, when we should have been getting about $400 a fortnight). It was a very nice bonus when family tax supplements came through.

    I only get it when I do my tax, that way I know I won't be forced to pay anything back. Takes me till nearly June to do my tax so they give you a while!

    Yes they do backdate. When I applied for DS he was about 3mths old and they backdated to when he came into our care at 6 days.

    Definitely apply now and double check as it may only happen if you've been receiving it for the full financial year.

    Thank you-- I didn't realise I could even get it until DF mentioned it....

    So I Ds was born Feb 2014 and received the parental pay from government which ceased I think July 2014. So should I have applied so payment starts July 2014 till now?? Does it matter that I went back to permanent pt work September 2014?

    You may have been entitled to more ftb before you starting working again. When you speak to centrelink just explain the situation, give them the dates and both your incomes through the last year and they will do the rest. Have you checked out the calculator they have on there website, that should give you a fair idea of what you are entitled to?
