    Default In need of info on payments if partnered and dad is stay at home parent

    Ive been on centrelinks website reading and its very confusing plus 90 min wait on the phone grr.

    Im in need of some info on the following:

    If my partner works and im a stay at home dad then how much and which payments am i entitled to?

    If my partner is on paid parental leave am i as the stay at home dad entitled to a payment, if so how much?

    My partner earns about 1100 per fortnight.

    Im new to all this and its driving me crazy.

    You would be entitled to ftb a & b, parenting payment partnered, healthcare card and rent assistance (if applicable)

    I'm pretty sure you can't claim parenting payment while she's claiming PPL.

    If your wife is getting ppl now that means she has chosen herself as the main carer for now. So you won't be able to get any payments until that finishes and she goes back to work.

    You would be able to get some ftb and possibly rent assistance.

    You're best off calling or going in there, because the advice will be specific to your situation.
    I find it's best to call before 9am or after 6pm (136150).
