Work and Income has made a number of key changes to simplify the process for parents paying for their children’s back to school costs.

In many cases, these transactions can be approved via their contact centre service, which saves people having to come into their local office.

The contact numbers are 0800 559 009 or 0800 552 002 for people receiving NZ Superannuation.

Visit the Work and Income website for more information on back to school costs.
