Family Energy Rebate 2014 – 2015

The Family Energy Rebate helps to cover the cost of energy bills for NSW households with dependent children.

In 2014 – 2015 the rebate gives families:

  • $150 credit on electricity bills for eligible applicants who hold an account with an electricity retailer.
  • $165 direct payment to nominated bank accounts for eligible applicants who live in a residential community (caravan or mobile home park) and receive electricity from the park operator.

To be eligible for the rebate you must:

  • Be a NSW resident; and
  • Have been assessed by the Federal Department of Human Services (DHS) as being eligible for the Family Tax Benefit (FTB) A or B at any time during the 2013 – 2014 financial year, and have received an FTB payment in respect of that eligibility; and
  • Be an account holder of an electricity retailer, or  a long-term resident of a residential community (caravan or mobile home park), whose name appears on the electricity account for supply to her or his principal place of residence.

What do I need to do before I apply?

  • Lodge your tax return for 2013 – 2014 with the Australian Taxation Office or informed the Department of Human Services (DHS) if you are not required to lodge a tax return?
  • Received confirmation from DHS as to your eligibility for Family Tax Benefit A or B for  2013 – 2014?
