    Default Large family supplement

    Is the LFS income based? I know it would cut off after a certain amount but is it on a scale before then?

    No idea but what do they consider as a 'large family', I was surprised to find out twins aren't considered as a 'multiple birth'!!!??

    We got it when DD was born so yes it starts when you have 3 kids. Thanks L6, it must be one scale as we have never gotten $20 a fortnight and it's dropped now we are into the next financial year (will be DFs first full financial year at his new job). It's all good, not complaining just curious

    I looked at mine online, I get $35 so it must be on a scale, I think on number of kids and income.

    From looking online with the estimators I believe it must be income tested as when this bubba is born we will get $11 p/f as a large family supplement. We will be a family of 3

    Yep I have 3 and I get 20-something dollars a fortnight. I haven't noticed it change through income changes, but then my/our income has always been quite low anyway.
