    Default School kids bonus...

    I've noticed I've only got one lot of school kids bonus being paid although my DS2 starts school this year. Just wondering if anyone knows how I can make sure it states my DS2 is starting school somewhere. Can I just do it using the app or online?? I'm just trying to avoid calling as I know it's a crazy time for Centrelink. I know there are lots of Centrelink savvy people on here so thought I'd ask for you advice on the matter. Thanks in advance

    If you log in through the my gov website, you can notify Centrelink that your ds2 is now attending school.
    *you may have missed the payment for him since you have already received it for your other ds. If that is the case you will be back paid after you do your tax return
    * may also be able to do the above on the app, I haven't checked

    * the above is true and correct AS FAR AS I KNOW- I know it's crazy and hard to believe- but I *have* been known to be (whispers) wrong... In the past!
