    Worked out today that we have a little over a year for me to find a job before the wheels fall off. There's only going to be one recruitment session within that time which is a little stressful.

    We have two school aged children and DP income is over $100,000 I just put our details in the calculator and we are eligible for $0.

    Have you tried the estimators?

    The more you earn the less you get. DH wage is right on the $100k mark (salary sacrifices and tax free allowances luckily brought it down a fair bit) and we still get over $15k a year in family tax benefits.
    I would use the rates estimator, it shows you what you should be entitled too.

    Just to add, my $7k figure was for the 14/15 financial year. I've no idea what the 15/16 financial year will bring.

    But the last financial year saw me getting FTB A and FTB B plus both lots if supps, an energery supp, a large family supp and a single income supp (I checked my statement).

    This financial year, if things have changed, I might not get anything. I honestly don't know.

    I got a letter when they made the changes saying my FTB was now zero.

    Hold onto your hats! This may shock you ladies - the online estimator is not available at the moment. Thank you for the link - I'll try it again later. I have considered going into Centrelink, but I doubt I'd come out enlightened.

    I was able to connect finally and worked out life beyond the boundary.

    It wasn't as horrifying as I thought it could have been which was slightly nice, but I really do need to get work or we are in big trouble. Two days would be perfect

    Next question...

    Is there a limit as to the amount of Child care benefit or rebate that the government will provide? I thought somewhere along the line I read it was a bit over $7000 for one of them but is that per child or per family? If it's per family, then working 3 days may not be possible. I could have dreamt that number too but didn't have to think of it at the time as there wasn't any scenario in my life that it was applicable to.

    How does it work for a business? Does anyone know? Or different rules apply? Income? Profit and loss? Etc?
