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