Child Care Benefit

Government subsidies

CCB is a payment from the Australian Government that helps you with the cost of childcare.

To be eligible for CCB you must:

  • meet Australian residency requirements
  • have the childcare provided in an approved or registered service
  • ensure your child complies with immunisation requirements or has an exemption
  • be liable (or your partner must be liable) to pay for this child care.

The amount of CCB you may receive depends on:

  • your income
  • the type of care you use (approved or registered)
  • the amount of care you use
  • whether you pass the work, training, study test
  • the number of children you have in care.
