REMINDER – If changing your Child Care Rebate (CCR) payment option for the 2017-18 financial year, you need to do it by 30 JUNE 2017.
If you receive your Child Care Benefit (CCB) as reduced fees your CCR can be paid:
– directly to your child care service to reduce your fees
– to you fortnightly, or
– to you quarterly
The CCR payment option you choose will be applied for the entire 2017-18 financial year. You won’t be able to change your payment option once the financial year starts so it’s important to think carefully about the best option for your family.
You can change your payment option for the next financial year by logging onto your Centrelink online account through my gov.
More info on these options can be updated and viewed HERE
