Do you still get a baby bonus in Australia?

Baby Bonus in Australia has been discontinued. The Baby Bonus was a government payment aimed at assisting families with the costs associated with having a baby. However, it was phased out and replaced with other family assistance measures.

Instead of the Baby Bonus, families may be eligible for other government payments, such as:

  • Family Tax Benefit Part A (FTB-A) and Part B (FTB-B),
  • Newborn Upfront Payment,
  • Newborn Supplement Payment.

These payments provide financial support to families with dependent children, including newborns.

It’s important to note that government policies and programs can change over time. To obtain the most up-to-date information on available payments and eligibility criteria, I recommend visiting the official website of Services Australia or contacting them directly. They can provide you with the latest details and guidance regarding family assistance payments in Australia.
