    Your better off getting your ftb as a lump sum then to avoid any debt or overpayment.

    Agreed. I wonder if the estimates can be changed. It's done now. I'll just wait for the accountant to send the paper work in and hopefully Centrelink contact me.

    Yep u can. You'll probably have a rough idea if you've been over paid if after u change your estimate your payments stop or become zero. Use the rate estimator and put in different amounts of income. It will give u a good indication of what you'd be entitled too.

    Better to over estimate. I accidentally underestimated as I got confused with Ftb/baby bonus stuff and my disability pension. I now have $2k debt! It's so confusing. Especially when the people on the phone go 'we can't estimate for you.

    It was only because I estimated his income without overtime STUPID mistake! Now I take lump sums and struggle until the end

    When claiming as a lump sum, does it automatically go into your account once they have confirmed wages etc with the ato at the end of the financial year?

    You can change your income estimate at anytime. So easy on the app.

    No Tinkers you have to put a claim in each year. When they get your info from ato doesn't matter it will just sit there.

    Monnie they can't estimate for you
    But u can ask them exactly how much dsp and newstart you've gotten to date .


    i had to put our ftb to zero for 2 months and to be honest we are struggling too.
