Calculate your Child Care Subsidy (CCS)

Use our CCS Estimator to see how much Child Care Subsidy your family could be eligible for.

The amount of Child Care Subsidy (CCS) you are entitled to will depend on four things:

  • How much ‘recognised’ activity you and your partner undertake each fortnight.  
  • The entitlement is based on the lesser activity figure for a member of a couple.
  • What your combined family income is. The child care fees you pay (hourly rate caps apply for each service type).
  • The number and age of children you have in 'approved' care.

Read the full terms of our Disclaimer and use of personal information before using the estimator.
