This topic explains 3 JETCCFA eligibility exceptions and covers:
JETCCFA can be paid during a person's income support payment nil rate period providing the person remains eligible for CCB at the maximum rate, however JETCCFA payments cannot extend beyond a JETCCFA activity limit (1.1.J.50) or apply when an income support payment is cancelled.
Example 1: George receives income support and JETCCFA during the first 18 weeks of a job, then increases his hours of employment and income such that he enters an income support nil rate period in the 19th week and remains eligible for the maximum rate of CCB. JETCCFA can be paid for the last 8 weeks (18 + 8) of George's 26 week JETCCFA activity limit. In these circumstances JETCCFA should not be paid for his nil rate period beyond the JETCCFA activity approval limit of 26 weeks.
Example 2: Anna receives income support and JETCCFA for part-time work. She gains full-time employment, and immediately enters into a nil rate period. At the completion of Anna's nil rate period, 13 weeks after commencing the job, her income support payment is cancelled and therefore her JETCCFA is cancelled. Anna can no longer receive JETCCFA because she is no longer receiving income support.
JETCCFA will be cancelled if the child and/or the person claiming JETCCFA leaves Australia temporarily or permanently (1.1.A.120) for more than 6 weeks. The date of effect of the cancellation is the date of the Sunday following the departure date.
Eligibility for JETCCFA is cancelled when a person receiving JETCCFA is granted SCCB.
