Child Care Benefit is a payment to help with the cost of child care for families who use either approved or registered child care. Whether you can get Child Care Benefit depends on your family income level and the number of children you have using approved child care.
If your family’s adjusted taxable income is under the income limits, you can get a part rate of Child Care Benefit. The part rate is worked out using your Child Care Benefit percentage. The Child Care Benefit Ready Reckoner can be used as a guide to estimate your family’s Child Care Benefit percentage.
