    Default Child care rebate overpaid...

    Does anyone know how I could have been overpaid the ccr from Centrelink?

    I just thought you got 50% of fees per quarter paid?

    Is any of it CCR? Maybe your eligibility changed to receive this as well.

    Not sure how you got overpaid though. I usually get a phone call from childcare saying mine is about to run out, around May/June and then I have to pay full fee after that.

    Child care benefit can be overpaid as it's assessed on income.

    This is the letter I got saying that part of my ccb has been used to repay my ccr over payment. It also says that both DH both qualified for ccr so I don't get how we could be overpaid..

    Did you stop being eligible during the financial year?

    CL advised me ccr is based on up to 50% off out of pocket expenses so for $7500 paid total child care cost would have been $15000. Last year because I was eligible for some ccb ( and I elected to get it paid to me at the end of the year ) my out of pocket was technically less ( as example they say pay me $1000 ccb therefore my out of pocket is $14000 not $15000) so I'm only eligible for $7000 rebate not $7500.
    The girl said that letter is automatically done and the $500 difference just comes out of the ccb repayment ( so I'll get $500 ccb instead of the $1000)

    I don't get ccb during the year but because I overestimated I get this payment.

    I didn't stop being eligible during the year.

    It's strange.

    Default Child care rebate overpaid...

    Yeh, so if you overestimated your income, and it means you actually qualified for ccb, then you would've been paid too much rebate because you wouldn't have paid as much in fees with ccb discount. Does that make sense?

    ETA -

    For example...
    Let's say your daycare fees are $70 day. You are eligible for $35 rebate with no ccb.

    But, if you qualified for ccb and your daycare fees went down to $60 day because of the ccb discount, that means you are only meant to receive $30 rebate, not $35. So that means you've been overpaid.
