    PPL and parental leave are different.
    oh. sorry. op should be alright then with getting gov parental leave then just may not be there long enough to have the job available if she chooses to take 12 months off.

    It's up to the employer whether they will keep the job open for you.

    I found out I was pregnant 1 month after starting a new job and will have only been employed for 9 months by the time I go on maternity leave. They are keeping my job open for me and providing 18 weeks full pay - good result for me!

    Thanks SO much ladies. This has helped me immensely. Kazza knows the background. I am looking to change jobs and was wondering if I get preg, say 3 months after starting what my Centrelink PPL outcome would be. Now I know, it doesn't matter-YAY!!!

    I am not really bothered about having my job held tbh because realistically, I doubt I could do it part time anyway and I don't want to go back full time after bub. More like 3 days...

    Am so relieved. So I guess I'll just be applying straight to Centrelink then, when that time arises.

    On another note, how far in advance do you apply before your due date? And do they start paying you after the birth?

    Laurs, that's such a good result

    You can start your application from 3 months prior to your due date. Once the baby is born the hospital will sign the declaration of birth. Once this is presented to centrelink your payments start within a few weeks. However if for example you are due July 1st, you could request payments don't start until say September 1st. I believed it has to be claimed within 12 months, but the start date is flexible
