3.5 CCS entitlement


This chapter explains the general provisions involved in determining an individual's CCS entitlement (1.1.E.30).

The amount of CCS an individual (1.1.I.90) is entitled to is dependent upon:

  • the individual's and their partner's (1.1.P.30), if they have one, combined annual ATI (1.1.A.20),
  • the activity level of the individual and their partner, if they have one, and
  • the type of child care service (1.1.A.90) used, and whether the child attends school.

Indexation of CCS

Each financial year the CCS first income threshold (1.1.I.70) will be indexed by CPI, and all other income thresholds will be shifted by the same dollar amount to preserve the slope of the subsidy tapers. The hourly rate caps and the annual cap are also indexed by CPI each financial year.
