If you receive FTB and your child is finishing high school this year, you’ll need to let Human Services know. The course end date for children completing Year 12 is determined by the school and it is usually the last day of classes or the last day of exams – whichever is later.
For children aged between 16 to 19, FTB payments will cease:
– from the date they stopped studying without completing year 12 or an equivalent qualification
– 28 days after completing their year 12 or an equivalent qualification if completed before November
– on 31 December if they complete year 12 or an equivalent qualification in November or December, or
– on 31 December if they are 19 years old and still in full time secondary study.
