Update your details to receive the new childcare subsidy

The child care fee assistance that Australian families receive will change from 2 July 2018.

One new Child Care Subsidy will replace the two current payments – the Child Care Rebate and Child Care Benefit.

To ensure families continue to receive child care fee assistance, they are encouraged  to complete an online Child Care Subsidy assessment as soon as possible through myGov.

If families do not complete their assessment before 2 July 2018, they may not receive any subsidy.

The new arrangements will mean that child care will be more affordable for most Australian families. Most lower and middle-income families that are eligible will receive a higher subsidy than they do now.

Translated resources about these changes are available in Arabic, Chinese (simplified and traditional), Korean, Dari and Vietnamese by contacting childcare@culturalpartners.com.au.
