    I won't be getting it but am using my tax return to put toward a fridge.

    Why don't I put it in the bank?

    Because I put hundreds of dollars per month in the bank already and I need a new fridge.

    Will be putting my lump sum CCR in the joint savings acc.

    We are not eligible for FTB but with some of the examples given here my mind boggles at how much some of you must receive.

    * note this is not a criticism on what you buy, more just my own surprise at how much FTB can work out to be

    I'm fairly sure the supplements are just a reimbursement of what people have been underpaid.

    It is 650ish per child and 390ish for the family, this is kept from fortnightly payments to avoid overpayments. So not EXTRA money.

    I think people just put it towards something, not that it covers the cost. I think I get a total of 7k in FTB for the year with the supplements. I can't imagine that would cover surgery, but it might be put with other savings.

    Some people get theirs in lump sums annually instead of fortnightly.

    I actually massively overestimated DHs income this year so we might get something for once

    It will all be going on his tax debt for this financial year haha how thrilling!

    We get a small amount of part a annually after we do our tax returns, so that and the supplement will go towards my home birth.

    I'm not counting on much, we under estimated DFs income so our payments have been reduced to $20 a fortnight for now to prevent a possible debt to them. I'd say max would be 1k, if I'm lucky
