Are you ready for the new Child Care Package?

01 Mar 2018 - OSHC

There’s quite a bit to do but we’re here to help.

The new Child Care Package commences 2 July 2018. To ensure you’re aware of how the new subsidy will affect you, we encourage you to prepare now with the following simple steps:

1. Read about the changes
2. Estimate your subsidy
3. Register with myGov

A refresher of what’s changing

When the Child Care Subsidy (CCS) commences, it will:

  • Replace the Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) with a single, means-tested subsidy
  • Require parents to confirm enrolments via a myGov account
  • Be paid directly to providers to be passed on to families
  • Be simpler than the current multi-payment system
  • Be better targeted and provide more assistance to low and middle income families.

We’ll continue to keeping you updated over the coming months on any changes you need to be aware of in the lead up to the new package commencing.
