I’m a divorced or single parent: am I entitled to a supplement?
Being a single parent doesn’t automatically entitle you to a social allowance.
Your family income must not exceed a certain threshold to be eligible to receive this. The fact that you are a single or divorced parent likely has an influence on your family income. This may make you eligible.
KidsLife automatically pays your Social Allowance if you are entitled to it! We do this following receipt of your tax return. We always receive this 2 years after the income year.
We (re)evaluate your Social Allowance for 2019 in 2021. We receive confirmation of your 2019 income from the federal government in 2021.
Eligible for this allowance and prefer not to wait 2 years? Contact your KidsLife adviser to submit an application.
