Dear Families

If you received Child Care Subsidy (CCS) for 2018-19, you must confirm your income with Centrelink. This includes CCS paid directly to you and CCS paid on your behalf to a child care provider.

Most parents have already confirmed their income, but if you haven’t, do it now.

If you don’t confirm your 2018-19 income by 30 June 2020, your CCS will stop from 13 July 2020.

To confirm your income with Centrelink, you and your partner need to either:

  • lodge your tax returns with the Australian Taxation Office (ATO)
  • complete an ‘Advise non-lodgement of tax return’ with Centrelink, if you don’t need to lodge a tax return.

You complete the ‘Advise non-lodgement of tax return’ in your Centrelink online account through myGov or your Express Plus Centrelink mobile app.

If you’ve already confirmed your family income for 2018-19, there’s nothing else you need to do.

Find out more about Child Care Subsidy on the Services Australia website.
