This payment of $700/child and $400/family (approximately).... has anyone actually had this paid to them? I'm starting to think it's a myth - everyone I know is talking about it but nobody has it. And if you have - how long after your tax refund was received did you get it? Thanks

No idea where it is,

this is from the human services website

It's not a myth. We haven't gotten ours this year but have the last few years (since whenever it started.) We will get it this year but I have to organise my tax first.

I saw that this morning. It would be good to know if SOMEONE has it. Last year we actually recieved it a few days before our tax refund went into the bank...

Yeah I'm confused too!
If you're a SAHM do you have to do a tax return if you only get centrelink payments and FTB?

I got mine on Tuesday, along with other arrears and stuff. It came almost 3 weeks after I lodged DH's tax & my non-lodgement.
