    Default maximum centrelink benefit for 2

    I've just thought of this now and am impatient so want to know now!! We are currently receiving from cntrelink the maximum amount of FTB a & b as well as the maximum amount of rent assistance. I'm wondering if anyone else is, but for 2 kids??? Jsut pondering how much we can expect to get when #2 comes along. I will probably ring them soon to get a rough idea, but given that they put you on hold forever and ds cracks it when I get on the phone, who knows when that will be!!

    Thanks in advance!! Fell free to pm if you don't feel like broadcasting your finances!! or just don't tell me at all, I understand!!

    if you go to the family assistance website, they have a calculator you can plug your figures into, and it will give you an estimate.

    I have two kids...the payments don't go up that much, well, ours didn't We are getting the max we can of everything and I think it went up by around $100 after DD was born.

    Sorry...you were probably hoping to hear it went up by more, I know I was hoping for a bit more each fortnight...oh well, it all helps
