Bubs will be born in 2 days and ill be receiving the PPL for 18 weeks. How do I know if I'm eligible for family tax benefit A and/or B? Does anyone know what the income threshold is? Thanks in advance!
    You don't get any FTB while getting PPL

    Yes once PPL is finished then yes but you have to estimate your income etc

    I got back paid because I should have been paid FTB A as well as PPL. Apply for both, if they've changed it they will let you know when you can claim.

    this is what centerlink said would happen for me as well. When you fill out the forms stil apply for ftb a + b and they will asses if your eligable.


    I believe you can still be paid ftb b while being paid ppl though?

    Does anybody know what the liberals stance on this is? As it appears likely that they will win at the next election in September. Will they stick with this decision or reinstate the baby bonus?

    From what I saw they don't want the baby bonus or the extra $2000 in FTB...

    That's what I'm wondering too. I guess they will have a budget reaction in the coming days that might clear it up
