8.1 Immunisation requirements - transitional arrangements

Introduction

This chapter describes the part year effects and transitional arrangements for changes to the immunisation requirements from 1 July 2012 onwards as well as the effect on past period claims.

New immunisation requirements apply from 1 July 2018. Where immunisation requirements are not met, an individual's FTB Part A child rate will be reduced. Immunisation requirements in place from 1 July 2012 to 30 June 2018 will continue to apply when determining whether an FTB Part A end of year supplement can be paid to a person for income years during that period.
