I put in DH's application for the Dad & Partner payment a few months back, and applied to have the payment from the baby's date of birth. We received the form saying the payment had been approved, and to just present proof of birth when the time came.
DD3 was born on the 5th August. DHvdropped off my paperwork for the baby bonus and FTB on the 6th (go organised me!). When he drooped off the form to Centrelink, he told them that the proof of birth also had to be advised for his Dads pay. The lady said it would automatically link.
So, they have processed the baby bonus, and FTB, but I can't see any sign of the dads pay.
Did yours come through at the same time, or have they not linked as we were told they would?
