    Default about parenting payment and becoming partnered

    Hello,

    Does anyone know the answer to this..

    When you become partnered and have children, when youngest turns 6, you are moved off onto NewStart and need to do that meet your obligations and job seeker stuff etc.

    Will that still apply if I become partnered and my partner is earning x amount to the point where I no longer receive parenting partnered BUT still receieve family tax benefits ?

    As in do you need to do the job seeker thing meet your obligations still if your partner earns x amount to the point centrelink no long pay the partner, parenting/newstart ?

    I need to know where I stand with this so I know what I might be doing in the possible very near future

    Family tax benefit is different from newstart/dole/welfare. It is just a supplement to help families get through so you won't need to look for work etc to still claim it.

    Oh that is awesome Thank You
    I am going to be partnered as in living with my partner Feb next Yr and my youngest is 6.
    I suffer with severe anxiety, I am more then fine at home, out doors does not work for me has not for many years.
    So was stressing if I had to go through the fortnightly reporting, looking for work part of things.

    I run a small home business I started and its doing ok so far, so we should be ok!

    Thank You I feel so much better now!
