    Default Extra child support

    I really hope someone can help me here! My exDH is willing to pay more than the assessed amount of child support (about double). Do I then report that as income to Centrelink? How do I work out if it affects my rent assistance, family tax benefit etc?

    I would report it as income as they do class it as an income which reduce your FTB etc. Better to claim it than them finding out and you having a debt. They do check bank accounts. Otherwise put the bills for school fees etc in his name and he pays those

    Absolutely. I definitely don't want to do anything shonky but just didn't know how to let them know and if it counts. I figured it must but can't make sense of the website.
