Child Care Subsidy (CCS)
This site provides an estimator to assist families in calculating what their benefit will be. The new CCS replaced both the current Child Care Benefit (CCB) and Child Care Rebate (CCR) in July 2018. It is paid directly to services to reduce the out-of-pocket cost for most families. https://www.education.gov.au/ChildCarePackage
This site allows you check your eligibility for payments, obtain your customer reference number (CRN) and other fee relief application forms.
Amongst other health services information this site gives you the ability to apply for an Immunisation History Statement, required as part of your child’s enrolment documentation into childcare and to assess your eligibility for Child Care Benefit (CCB). www.humanservices.gov.au/customer/dhs/medicare
