If I received centrelink benefits, I'd include them.
I'm only eligible for the child care benefit and rebate... Is that income?

Yes I include our FTB. We earn 50k with wages and CL and while we rent, our kids get plenty. We live simply but well. We have a small pool of savings and our bills are always in advance. I love my life and on 100k+ I would feel loaded.
Just bc people on smaller incomes can make it work doesn't mean they are lying....

We only get child care rebate, as we don't qualify for anything that is means tested. But I haven't included child care rebate when calculating our income. We pay child care upfront and then get CCR reimbursed quarterly.

I consider our income before tax.
We don't get government assistance but back in the day when I received student allowance I considered that 'pay day.'

When I refer to our (DH's) income, I'm referring to his pre-tax income and don't include my FTB entitlements as I claim that yearly, so it has no impact on our day to day budget.

I don't usually include CCR when I list ours. It's the only payment we get but it goes directly to the centre.
I guess if I got something else, especially if it was weekly/fortnightly payment.
