Hi all, I work with the Australian Government Department of Human Services in a team that responds to questions about Medicare payments and services on social media sites like this. Just wanted to answer a couple of questions that have popped up in this thread.
If you are having problems updating details in online services, this may be because you are not in the right section. You need to ensure that you check and update the details in the Schoolkids Bonus Student Details section on online services.
When details of the Schoolkids Bonus show up in online services will vary from person to person, depending of their specific circumstances, and it may not show up until the day the payment goes into your account.
You can find more detailed information about the Schoolkids Bonus here: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/schoolkidsbonus
All the best! Ingrid
