not just you though - if you have underestimated your partners income, it will change your entitlements.
it goes on family income ... so gets tricky. (the govt doesnt like to make these things too easy - some days it feels like you need a degree in tax in order to complete the paperwork )

I know what you mean re: govt not making it easy. I used to hand in my paperwork weekly when working as a student and they still called me up several years later stating that I hadn't declared something - I told them to go and check their paperwork that was handed in at 'x' office and that the amount was below the yearly amount that students were allowed to earn anyway. They wanted me to chase the paperwork when I was living 4 hours away from that office and I refused as I had done the correct thing and they had just been lazy.
I remember in between uni and starting work when I had to do another course we put our paperwork in for rent assistance, they lost it!!! We had no money and were paying full rent - we had to use our wedding money which wasn't that much to live off. So should have photocopied it, but you don't expect them to lose it when you hand it in in person. Of course they don't backpay as we couldn't prove they stuffed up - I wonder if anyone has used security camera footage to prove them incompetent!?!
Edit: Forgot to add - thread could probably be closed now please- I don't think much more info will come and will just be a 'surprise' what happens next year...will the calculator be right...stay tuned!

I remember once trying to complete some id requirements - they lost the photocopies of my passport ... I couldnt get to the office (lived in the country) so they ask me to send my passport in so they could view it and copy it.
They truly couldnt understand why I had an issue with that.

LT for ftb A you can earn up to $5000 for full payment and up to approx. $27000 for part payment. For ftb b I think it starts dropping once your combine income reaches 60k or something.

Ftb b goes on the lower income earners wage not combined. Part a and b works on combined. The calculator is the best to use.
So if you earn from $0-$5000 roughly then you'll get max payment for part b

my estimate was more than $27,000 for part A and I'm a few dollars off from max payment. I think once you earn over the income free threshold of $50,151 then it starts to affect your payments as my part b is lower and I'm nearly on full payments.

My husband had an actual appointment to hand in docs for a payment and they misplaced some paperwork saying it was lost. Apparently it had been scanned into the wrong area or something. He had to go back in and hand it again!

I have no way of knowing if I will get any work. I'm likely to at two schools if they need someone on that day. Trying to crack into one more school though - will see how that goes!
