      Nope, sorry but NicF is correct. Childcare benefit is means tested and the percentage will change. If both my kids are in childcare I get a higher percentage paid than if only one of them goes. Childcare benefit is 50% for everyone regardless of income. If you are getting 67% paid it is Childcare benefit not rebate.

      Oh I stand corrected... Better contact them and make sure I am on right thing as she told me everyone got 67% regardless of income if they have 2 kids! Oh well I won't be earning much this year anyway as we haven't been here long so only just establishing ourselves so I think it'll be ok! ��
