Single Income Family Supplement

Purpose of payment

The Single Income Family Supplement is an annual payment of up to $300 that provides assistance with household expenses, including energy costs.


It is paid to families with one primary earner whose income is between $68,000 and $150,000.  Family Tax Benefit recipients will be paid the Single Income Family Supplement automatically when their Family Tax Benefit instalment entitlement is reconciled or their lump sum claim is granted. These customers do not need to do anything to receive this payment. Single Income Family Supplement may be used to offset overpayments. Customers who think they may be eligible and do not receive Family Tax Benefit will need to submit a claim each financial year for the Single Income Family Supplement. These customers can make a claim for payment through the Department of Human Services.
