FTB advance payment regardless how much u loan once u paid it all, u can apply advance payment straight away anytime. But others like Disability Advance Payment u have to wait for the certain time before you apply again. Length for waiting is 13 forthnights or 6months. Regarless u paid ur loan or not in advance. Still need to wait.

You can get a FTB advance payment which I think is $280 or so..
And if you are on a payment like single parent pension you can get $500 - you need to have been on it 3 months at least, from memory. If you log in to centrelink you can just choose advance payment and apply, it takes 2 business days to go in to your account and you pay it back out of your payment in small increments.

FTB advance amount is based on individual circumstances. There is no set amount for everyone

I just applied for one yesterday. Log into your centrelink account and click on 'advance payment'. It asks how much you have left over each fortnight after expenses. It then tells you how much they can give you (I was offered up to $400 but I think it offers different amount based on how much your normal payments are; I was offered $400 and I receive $278 a fortnight).
If you accept that amount it then shows you what your repayment schedule will be. You accept the repayments and the money is deposited to you within 2 business days.
Not sure if it's every 6 or 12 months you can apply.

I can get the max of $1100 advance on my ftb every six months (pay back about $80 from each fortnightly payment) and $500 on my
Spp every 12 months. Get on the app and click advance payments and apply. They can approve right away and mine is usually paid the next day.

You enter how much you can afford to pay back each fortnight (put like $60-$80) and then they tell you how much you can borrow (capped at like $700 maybe?) And then they tell you what repayments are and for how long eg- $37.50 fortnightly for 6months. Then you accept. Then you get the money usually on your next payday i think? Its been quite a while since ive used one- you used to be able get 2 (one for family tax and one for advanced pension payment, the if you get FTB advance the repayment comes from FTB payments same as the other. Can only get 1 (of each) per 12months.
