HOW IS YOUR FEE AND CHILD CARE BENEFIT CALCULATED?

The Family Assistance Office administers and delivers CCB on behalf of the Federal Department of Families
and Community Services.
Phone 136 150
www.familyassist.gov.au/Internet/FAO/fao1.nsf/content/payments-ccb

The maximum CCB currently (from July 1 2007) payable to families for 1 child is
\$3.37 per hour of care.
This rate is indexed and changes on July 1 each year.
School age children receive 85% of this rate equating to \$2.86 per hour.

School’s Out runs a 3.25 hour session for After School Care and 11 hour session for Vacation Care.

Therefore the maximum CCB for 1 child for 1 afternoon is calculated as:

Maximum CCB = HOURS                  X          MAXIMUM RATE

= 3.25 hrs          X         \$2.8645

Maximum CCB (After School Care)                =     \$9.31 (\$9.309625)
(Vacation Care)                     =     \$31.50

FAO will pay on your behalf a percentage (Your CCB percentage) of this amount.
If you have more than 1 child you will have a 1 child percentage, a 2 child percentage etc. The applicable
percentage will depend on how many children are in care (at School’s Out or another centre). e.g. If you
have 1 child at School’s Out and another child in care elsewhere the 2 child percentage would be applicable.

To calculate your own CCB                                      To calculate your contribution to the fee.
Multiply \$9.31 by your CCB % (as notified by FAO)
Family contribution = Our fee (\$12 ASC/ \$30 VAC) less Your CCB.
Example 1         CCB 104.5%
CCB = \$9.31 X 104.5%
= \$9.73                                                    Example 1           CCB 104.5%
Family Contribution = \$12 - \$9.73
Example 2         CCB 16.74%                                   Family Contribution = \$2.27 per child.

CCB = \$9.31 X 16.74%                                           Example 2           CCB 16.74%
= \$1.56                                                    Family Contribution = \$12 - \$1.56
Family Contribution = \$10.44 per child
