No. A partnered sahp gets fta, ftb and maybe rent assistance. A single parent is different, I am not sure what they get.

As a low one income family I have never been on or heard of any other partnered shap being on newstart without looking for work or studying. I just looked it up.To be on newstart your partner has to earn less than 826 a f/n from memory.

Some people seem to care a great deal and it honestly boggles my mind. Why?
P.s we are a double income family and I work 60 hours a week for 8 months of the year and I am lucky enough to be able to take my children with me to work and have 4 months off every year to be a sahm, best of both worlds. If I didn't have this job I would be a full time sahm because I personally wouldn't use child care.

Jen, I'm on newstart. Once your youngest goes to school (6 if you're partnered and I think its 8 if you're single) you have to look for 15 hours a week minimum and they change the name of your payment to newstart. So I've been on it for a while now. I earn between $400 and $600 a week from work and still get a small percentage of my newstart. DH's DSP is also reduced. I also get my FTBs and rent assistance.

See I see this way if you looking for work than you are a job seeker not a full time sahp, iykim. Or a part time working parent/part time sahp. I hope that makes sense.

Oh so many of ya'll would be hatin' on me right now!
High income earner. Still entitled to government assistance. Could easily live without it, but still choose to claim at tax time every year to get a nice wad of cash to fritter away on what I please.
Oh, and I am a SAHM. Feel free to throw any hate my way, I'm up for it. Might as well hate on me, I'm happy to take the heat off the SAHMs who depend on their assistance, for whatever reason they are a SAHM, school aged kids or not
To the SAHMs in this thread who have felt offended by or felt the need to defend themselves to others in this thread, I say f***'em! SAHMs are undervalued enough in our society, don't let the haters get you down! You all rock

Part of the issue, I am sure, is that there are just not enough "child friendly" jobs out there. If you have kids in school and you need to drop them off and pick them up - already, straight away you are out of the running for many jobs.
I absolutely personally can't wait to get back to work - but I am stressing a little over my not very flexible work hours.
