My understanding is that people who have their babies this month (ie before July 1) will get their $800 plus be eligible to apply for the $500 at the end of every tax year for the first 5 years (if they are not already getting it for another child apparently you can only get that for one child per year) But after July 1 you just get your $3000 and that's it. I'm safe because my bub is not due till Nov.
I think that everyone who gets FTB part A will get a payment of $600 before the end of June...Per Child...Which makes $1800 for us. If that happens every year that will be a major bonus!!!
