    You still have 2 years of the payment it seems if your child turns 6 before 1st July.

    Also the parenting payment one waa already in place. If your partnered it cuts out at 6 if your single it cuts out at 8 vit you become activity tested and have to look for work from 6-8 years of age but still receive higher rate. Once your child turns 8 you move to newstart.

    That link talks about FTB part B only not Part A.

    So basically any woman who has a baby from now on won't get part B.

    Not that I know of unfortunately It's hard enough getting by now. We already buy homebrand everything as it is so hardly living it up with the FTB I think they are trying to get mums back to the workforce however they have overlooked the fact there aren't enough jobs in reality to do that. Wouldn't it be nice to never speak to centrelink again - Hence the reason I began my degree in the first place

    The lady I spoke to this morning told me children that turn 6 before the 1st of July 2015 will get it for 2 years. If they turn 6 after the 1st of July it's from when they turn 6. She said if it passes it will be from February for us. We have 3 children so part B makes up most of what we get. Part A is about $106.00 per fortnight. We don't receive any parenting payment so I am unsure of what's going on with that one.

    No. If your youngest child turns six after July 31st this year than it affects you.

    from what I understand FTB part B is the flat amount, and FTB Part A is the amount you get per child.

    If you give birth now when your youngest turns 6. You will lose ftb b. Yes.

    Anyone with their youngest turning 6 after that date will be affected. So from kids that are 5 now down to kiss that aren't even a twinkle in their dad's eyes yet.
