** A new Child Care Subsidy eligibility rule is starting soon!**

Updated: Jun 15

** A new Child Care Subsidy eligibility rule is starting soon!**

From 11 July 2022, children who haven’t used care at least once in 26 weeks will no longer be eligible for CCS

.

Children who haven’t attended care since 10 January 2022 will lose their eligibility from 11 July 2022. The rule will then apply on an ongoing basis.

Families can submit a new CCS claim if their child re-commences care.


What do I need to do?

Services Australia has notified impacted families – you don’t need to take action.

Have a question about the new rule? Ask below!


What about families that get the higher CCS?


The 26-week rule may affect a family’s entitlement to the higher CCS for families with more than one child aged 5 or under in care.

If a standard rate child’s eligibility ends, Services Australia will reassess all other children in the family to determine the new standard rate child and new subsidy rates.

If families at your service want more information about their eligibility or entitlement for CCS, direct them to:
