    Default Additional Benefits for second child

    Due to have my second Child in 3 weeks and money has been a bit tight of late as i have lost my additional money i was getting for working 1 day a week and DH has lost his overtime at work as he is trialling a new job

    Once bubs arrives i want to get the additional money for my FTB A & B ASAP how do you go about this, is it any different to your 1st child ??

    You will only get more money with either A or B, I forget which one.
    You will recieve the extra payment once Centrelink recieve your baby bonus papers etc. If you get you Family Tax Benefit paid annually you will need to call them and change the payments to fortnightly.

    I hope that helps?

    If you have stopped work and down to just the one income then you can get part B right now as you already caring for a child. As far as extra part A for your second child, you have to wait until he/she is born and the doctor fills out a form for you to get it...and also the baby bonus

    Thanks guys, I remember getting the baby bonus and centrelink with bubs within about 15 dyas of birth as i filled out the day bubs was born and got DH to post instantly and they accepted without Birth Certificate. Not sure if this has changed.

    I am currently getting Part A & B and when i did the estimate my income and added a second child (I said it was born yesterday) it estimated an increase of $128 pf which will theni guess be pro rated as bubs will be due 30th Septemberish so expecting about $95 pf roughly not much extra but every cent helps.
