Is a letter required?



What to do

Advise the individual (1.1.A.72) that they must immediately provide bank account details into which fortnightly instalments (1.1.I.100) of FTB can be paid.


Consequences of not complying with the request

Advise the individual that failure to provide bank account details stops their claim from being able to be determined.


The individual should be advised that a claim that cannot be determined cannot be reinstated by any Centrelink action and if they want to test their eligibility for FTB in the future they must lodge a new claim.



An electronic or paper file record of this advice should be kept.
