    Default Carer Allowance v Childcare Rebate

    Hi,
    I would like to put my 2 yr old DD into childcare (she has ASD). I'm SAHM and here is my question - Will I get 50% back in CCR if I receive Carer Allowance for my DD? I checked Centrelink website and it says I satisfy a work, study test if getting CA? Is that true? Anyone was in this situation???
    Thank you

    Yes, you will, carers allowance is an automatic 50% even if you are a SAMH. That is what I get now.

    This is good to know for me too thanks for asking! I have also heard that if you can prove medically that your child needs one on one daycare, like a nanny at home, you get the same child are rebate for that. Is this true? (sorry for crashing your thread)
