    Default Single to partnered how do u cope

    This is one of the reasons why my dp and I don't live together yet and won't until both my kids are in school and I can get a job, which is another 2 years yet and we've been together over a year. I don't want to have to solely rely on dp.

    It's not just SPP. Ftb, rent assistance, health care and pension cards (so electricity rebate, car rego, medicines, dr appointments etc), CCB rate (or is it CCR? I'm not familiar with childcare) and probably more that I'm missing.

    Is someone able to give me an example? If a household is on a low income they will still receive a good amount of CCB etc. I don't understand how a household income could be lower than PPS with one working. Or even not working as one would receive NewStart on top of other payments.

    Is this really turning into another partnered vs single?

    I'm just trying to get clarification as I genuinely do not understand where people are getting their information. I don't disagree...

    Ahh ok coolies I'm trying to tread lightly because I know how heated these can become, but having gone through both single parenthood and partnered I cannot get my head around the concept.

    I'm not sure on numbers as I've never been a single parent, was just giving you examples that there are other payments that drop too.
