As part of Child Care Subsidy balancing, families need to confirm their income.

For the 2018–19 financial year families need to do this by 31 March 2021. The deadline was extended from 30 June 2020 to 31 March 2021 because of COVID-19.

Services Australia is sending letters to families this week reminding them to confirm their 2018-2019 income.

If families don’t confirm their income by 31 March 2021 their CCS will stop. This means we need to charge full fees when you use child care.

If families confirm their income after 31 March, their CCS can start again but it won’t be back paid.

For families unfamiliar with this process, see the attached info sheet.
