Update details or risk missing out on support

By Cobram Courier

District families are being reminded to switch over to the Federal Government’s new childcare and early learning system or miss out on subsidies.

With just a week to go, about 70 per cent of families have switched.

‘‘Every family in the electorate who access Federal Government childcare benefits need to make the switch by July 2 or they could miss out on receiving the new child care subsidy,’’ Federal Member for Murray Damian Drum said.

Mr Drum urged families and childcare and early learning providers to visit www.education.gov.au/ childcare as soon as possible.

‘‘Even if your circumstances are likely to change before July 2, just jump online and get into the new system. Updates can be made easily at any point via your Centrelink online account via myGov,’’ Mr Drum said.
