    Question Parenting Payment and CSA

    Hi,

    A friend of mine pays CSA to his ex every month, and it works out at about $2000. She is earning about net $1400 a fortnight with her salary, but doesn't have to pay rent or anything where she lives (old family home). Anyway, it just came to light that she also gets FTB and full Parenting Payment (their kids are 7&10, 30/70 split roughly) - well I think it's full, it's over $200 a fortnight.

    Does CSA not impact these govt benefits? Or vice versa?

    Thanks
    Narelle

    Child support has no impact on parenting payment. It is calculated based on the parent's income and $1400 per fortnight is well under the income limit.


    Child support does impact FTB and from what you have written, she is not receiving the maximum amount, so I would assume that child support has been taken into account.
