Action required: Complete your Child Care Subsidy assessment now
Complete your assessment now by signing into your Centrelink online account through myGov.
If you complete the assessment by 23 September 2018 your Child Care Subsidy entitlement can be back paid to 2 July 2018, subject to eligibility.
After 23 September 2018 you will have to submit a new claim for Child Care Subsidy with Centrelink. New claims can only be backdated for a maximum of 28 days.
The assessment is quick and easy to do with most information already populated by Centrelink. Follow these simple steps:

You must complete all steps in the online form, including confirming your enrolment for each of your children attending our centre. The Department of Human Services has provided this guide to help families complete the Child Care Subsidy assessment.
If you have disputed an enrolment previously, you need to go online and confirm the updated enrolment details.
The assessment will only appear if you received a payment for approved care before 2 July. If you can’t see the assessment you’ll need to submit a new claim for Child Care Subsidy.
If you’ve already completed your assessment or a new claim, make sure you’ve confirmed your child’s enrolment details with us. Child Care Subsidy can’t be paid until you do this.
