    I don't check because I do not use the money. If I wanted to I could check easily. I don't work either, I'm a full time mum 😃

    We get ours at end of financial year so I have no idea how much because my husband's income fluctuates every year because he is self employed.

    If you underestimate 2 years in a row they suspend your payments.

    This is why we only get our ftb at the end of the financial year

    No what i meant is that how can people who receives ftb fortnightly not know how much they are getting and what falls into their account.

    Same waiting time applies then Nafiska. However soon your accountant does your husbands tax then after that allow a month.

    I wonder if there has to be an amount that you underestimate by that it suspends payments. Cause last year i didn't underestimate but i got about $150 overpaid so lost a bit of my supplements.

    We are in the building industry, so it could be a quiet year or a busy year. It's hard to estimate.

    I have no idea how much we get. I don't really pay much attention to our bank account credits/debits TBH. We save where we can and I know the total amounts we have in there at the end of each month but don't pay much attention to the specifics.
