    Default Health care card

    How much can you have to earn before you loose the parenting payment and health care card all together?

    I think its around $1500/fortnight for 6 consecutive fortnights. If you go under one of those weeks it starts again.
    Thats for single parenting payments.

    I can't remember the exact amounts but, I got 6 fortnightly of $0 parenting payment Before loosing my healthcare card.I was also told to apply for one as some people who earn a touch too much for parenting payment are still eligible for the health care card, but it's not issued automatically.

    I earn around $1200 p/f and we don't get either.

    Dp could be on newstart and we'd get a hcc but because I earn too much he wouldn't actually receive any money and would still have to deal with centrelink and job network so for us it's not worth having.

    It all depends on if you single or not, how many kids you have etc...
    It does tell you on the centrelink site.
