    Default Does single parent payment go up for subsequent children?

    Hi there,
    I am due with no 2 in November and am working towards renting my own place very soon (have been living with my parents for the last 3 months after leaving abusive ex husband) however I'm trying to work out a budget first.
    I currently receive $1167 for single parent payment and FTB (that's the total amount of the two combined), as far as I'm aware it's the maximum payment for a single mother of one with full time care.
    Now I'm just wondering will this go up at all with 2nd baby and if so by how much?

    Thank you!

    Neither. PPS is a set amount regardless of how many kids you have. FTB A will go up. If you use the estimator and put in you have two kids (put a dummy DOB to get it to work) you will get a good idea if what your payments will be.

    This, plus child support will increase.
