    Hi OP,

    There is member on here who has done this, she put the father down as a sperm donor and receives full FTB benefits as a single mother. So yes, you will get full rate centerlink benefits.

    Wow how disappointing to see these comments.
    Op you will still get full FTB if you put sperm donor.
    If you want to know more details or what amount you would be entitled to, I suggest doing the online estimator or going into a centrelink office to talk with someone
    Good luck

    No, the op said ftb - family tax benefit, not parenting payment!

    Hi Elly, gracefully handled. Well done on planning ahead for your future baby. It's unclear whether the known sperm donor you mention is an arrangement you're entering into with someone you know personally, or whether it's through a Clinic (as all sperm donors are no longer anonymous and identifiable when children turn 18). If it's a personal arrangement, it would be really advisable to get some legal advice to make sure your interests are protected. Sometimes, even with the best intentions, relationships can go awry and it will be comforting for you to know that you and your child are protected and that you have fully agreed to the terms with your donor and that you both agree with them

    All the best for your journey. Feel free to join us on the single and donor sperm thread.

    Wish

    I=Hi,

    I know this is an old thread. Wondered if I can get help.

    What happens when you use a known sperm donor and centrelink want information? My Known Donor is worried that he will be liable and I want to find a way to make sure he isn't liable for child support.

    Using a donor as am having issues wwith fertility and premature menopause

    Just put father unknown on birth certificate and any centerlink forms that way donor had no legal obligations at all. I did this and now have a dd who is 8 and never had a problem with centrelink or anything.
