So, it's been some time since DS was last enrolled in child care and we stopped receiving CCB and CCR since early 2013 and I realised I have to start apply all over again.
In the past two weeks, DS attended vacation care at his primary school and I didn't know that I needed to apply for CCB and CCR again. So they daycare has been charging me full fees and I thought I could sort the rest out with Centrelink, but i'm just so lost now!
I've received an online letter from Centrelink this morning advising that the benefit I get from CCB is zero. I don't know whether that's because he's recorded as school child and only attending vacation care for the duration of 2 weeks. Or whether because there's an information I've inputted wrongly?
Ok say that I don't get CCB, but when I lodged the claims online, I also opted an option that i'd like to get CCR too. Now for the sake of my memory, I can't remember what payment options I chose to receive for my CCR (Whether it's a lump sum, reduced fees, or fortnightly, etc). Say I didn't opt for reduced fees, how can I get a rebate for childcare fees I've spent on vacation care? Would that be automatically paid to me? Help please!
