    Default centrelink payments if DH works?

    Can anyone tell me what is the most my DH could earn that would still make me eligible for assistance? With bub three coming if I went back to work I'd have two in childcare plus one in after school care and its just not worth it unless I get a full time, stressful but highly paid job even with the CCR and CCB. Even then more then half goes on childcare, its just nit worth it. DH clears about $800 a week but its not enough to support a family of 5 with our mortgage repayments. I don't know anything about Centrelink and couldnt find any info.

    I would say you would have ftb entitlement. Your best bet is to use the estimators on the centrelink site or even give them a call. You should be able to get a more accurate idea of what you will be entitled to then.

    It's still quite a high amount before payments get completely cut off. Do you know how much DH will be earning?

    Default centrelink payments if DH works?

    Given it dh earns roughly $800 per week I would definitely say you are still entitled to payments for sure.

    My dh earns just over $2000 after tax a week and we are still entitled to a little bit. We don't get anything for our combined income family tax a? But I get a little bit for family tax b? Cause I don't work. It's really not much though and that's for 2 kids.

    Try the online calculators but I'm positive you will be eligible for both family tax a and family tax b and all the entitlements that go with that (school kids bonus etc)

    You should still get some ftb. Liked pp have said look at their online estimate calculator.
