    Does anyone know if you start studying full
    Time on a single parent pension that you may get more money ?
    also how much can you work before your payments are effected ?

    As a primary carer you only need to work only 30 hrs per fortnight. Not sure you’ll receive more on Austudy, I would think that the Single mum pension is more, not sure. But family tax benefit will change when you work more hours 😜👍🏽

    It depends on the age of your kid/s.

    Yes you should get more if it’s full time, give them a call. Best way as everyone’s situation if so different.

    This page may help you hun, but agree with last poster in that you’ll need to talk to Centrelink:
