Applications for the School and Year Start-up Payment are open until the 28 February for caregivers who receive the Unsupported Child’s Benefit or Orphan’s Benefit for children in their care.
With the school year right around the corner, this can often be a stressful time when it comes to the cost of school fees, uniforms and stationery. This payment is to help with those costs.
How much you get is based on the age of the child at the end of February each year.
|Age of child (at end of February)||Payment|
|0 – 4 years||$400|
|5 – 9 years||$450|
|10 – 13 years||$500|
|14 years and over||$550|
