This is a payment to go towards paying for childcare.
Child Care payments will stop if:
- ACC can provide the payment—but we'll top up the payments if they pay you less than what we can
- the child has turned 14 years of age
- five years have passed since the support started.
The Child Care payments will continue if the child:
- is older than 14, and
- has a physical or mental condition that needs childcare.
The five-year limit still applies if you continue to receive Child Care payments after your child is 14.
