How long does it take to get newborn payment and family tax benefits


Answers (1)

It varies, like any payment from centre link. I had applied while pregnant and just had to provide proof of birth documents once Bub was born and it still took 6-8 weeks before I received any payment. My sister got paid after 2 weeks 🤷‍♀️
