50% Childcare Rebate (CCR) and Childcare benefit (CCB)

The 50% Child Care Rebate (CCR)

Many families don't think the Child Care Rebate is available to them as they think it is based on their income. Well, it isn't means tested, and you could be missing out on getting 50% of your fees rebated!

Most families are eligible for the 50% rebate of all out of pocket expenses for attending OSHClub programs. Many families are getting half their fees back as an immediate discount when they ask for their rebate to be Paid to their service provider.

You can do this by logging on to your Centrelink online account through the myGov site. 

Simply select the "Approved child care service to reduce your fees" option and it will be set up for you.
