Child Disability Allowance - standard letter for application

Most Deaf or Hard of Hearing children are eligible for the Child Disability Allowance (CDA) from Work and Income New Zealand (WINZ) in order to assist with some of the extra costs associated with raising a child with extra needs.

There have been many regional differences for families applying for the CDA, and in order to make this application as smooth as possible we have created a standard letter for families to add in their own details and ensure that their letter of application meets the criteria.

There is a standard letter for children with hearing aid(s) and another for children with cochlear implant(s).
