Sorry if this has been asked already. I was told few days ago by a friend that those on benefits will be getting extra bonus supplements end of April (something to do with the carbon tax I think?) Was told it was $250 per adult, $100 per child and an extra $80 per family

Just found this!
Assistance for families
Families receiving Family Tax Benefit Part A will receive an increase in their payment equivalent to 1.7 per cent of the annual rate of payment. This is worth up to $110 per child per year.
All families receiving Family Tax Benefit Part B will get an increase to their payment equivalent to 1.7 per cent of the maximum rate. This is worth up to $69 per family per year.
This assistance will first be delivered through a one-off, tax exempt, lump sum Clean Energy Advance from May-June 2012.
After this increases will be delivered as a separate Clean Energy Supplement which will be paid as part of families’ regular payment cycles.
People in low-income family households who do not receive sufficient assistance as an increase to their payment or through the tax system will also be able to claim a new Low Income Supplement of $300. The supplement will be claimed through Centrelink.
Further assistance will be made available to middle-income family households with one primary earner to account for the fact they will only benefit from one earner’s tax cuts. These families will receive assistance as an increase to their payment through the Single Income Family Supplement of $300. Families not receiving Family Tax Benefit will be able to claim the supplement through Centrelink.
