    I don't think there is one??

    The payments I'm aware of are only paid after bub is born and depends on your eligibility as to whether you would get Paid Parental Leave or the Newborn Supplement.

    Never heard of it.


    Don't think it exists.


    I'd let your son and his girlfriend sort out their centrelink business by themselves.

    No such payment exists. If either of them are receiving newstart then they could get an advance if they are eligible. If so it's $500 paid back over 12 mths.

    If they're already on centrelink benefits then they can apply for an advance but no specific baby payment pre baby being born.

    I don't really think anyone was being rude! Just answering your question.
