Just wondering if anyone has knowledge about the centrelink payments to do with the carbon tax that are coming in July, 2013.
We only get family tax (A & B) from centrelink and are a single income household.
Reading on the centrelink website it seems there are a few $300 one-off payments coming on 1st July, 2013 linked to the carbon tax.
I thought we would get the single income family supplement however on the Centrelink website it says primary earner needs to earn $68,000 to $150,000 and DH literally earns just under at $67,000.
And for the low income family supplement we needed to earn under $60,000 however as mentioned DH earns just over.
So am I right that we miss out on this payment for unfortunately being literally between the 2 categories or is there some payment Im missing?

My name is Gigi and I work with the Australian Government Department of Human Services in a team that responds to questions about Centrelink payments and services on social media sites like this.
From 1 July 2013, the Clean Energy Supplement will be added to your fortnightly Family Tax Benefit payments. If you receive both Family Tax Benefit Parts A and B, you’ll get a supplement with each payment. It’s automatic so there’s no need to apply or contact us. If you claim it as a lump sum, you’ll get it when your 2013-14 claim is processed.
In addition to the Clean Energy Supplement, there are also other payments people might be entitled to.
The Single Income Family Supplement is an additional payment of up to $300 for single income families with a dependent child or children and with one primary earner whose income is between $68,000 and $150,000. You don’t need to apply as it’s automatically paid if you’re eligible. More information can be found on our website http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/single-income-family-supplement
The Low Income Family Supplement is an annual $300 payment for people in low-income households. More information, and a self assessment tool, is available on our website. http://www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/services/centrelink/low-income-family-supplement. Please note you need to lodge a claim for this payment.
