I applied for Youth Allowance in 2017 but was unsuccessful because my parents' income was over the threshold. Should I apply again?Updated 22/01/2020 01.08 PM
Changes were made to the way your parents' income affects your entitlement for Youth Allowance.
You should make further enquiries as these changes may mean you now qualify for Youth Allowance although you were not eligible previously.
