I think it will be means-tested the same way as the old one was. With the old way you had to be getting some FTB A or a payment was made for the child which prevented you from receiving FTB A.
$820 for every teenager at school and $410 for every primary school child, which will be paid to parents from next year in two instalments - at the beginning of the school year and in July.
One of full payments to be paid from next month.

I think she would win more votes if they actually put a plan in plan to fix the appalling public school system instead of throwing a few hundred dollars at parents, yes it will help a little short term but it's the long term that people want their children to benefit with better schools, more teachers and better equipment, or maybe help pay for after school care

I wonder how long the $410 per school aged child will help the single parents being cut off at the knees?
