Healthy start for School Fact Sheet

Do you receive Family Tax Benefit & Income Support Payments?

Do you have a child turning four?

Has your child had a health check?

  • If no, payment of your end-of-financial- year Family Tax Benefit-Part A Supplement worth up to $726 may have already been withheld.  To receive this payment, you need to ensure that your child has a health check and that you notify Centrelink that this has been completed.

  • If yes, you need to notify Centrelink as soon as possible that your child completed a health check to receive the end-of-financial year Family Tax Benefit-Part A Supplement.

For more information on how you can meet the requirements visit the Department of Human Services website or download the fact sheet here to find out how you can complete a health check in your State or Territory.
