Eligible children will have access to a benefit cap of $1,013 over a two calendar year period.

To be eligible a child must be aged between 2-17 years and their family must receive Family Tax Benefit Part A or a relevant Australian Government payment.

Families can check whether their child is eligible for the CDBS by contacting Services Australia. General information about the program can be found on the Services Australia website.
