    You've prob read this, and I would give CL a call but:

    Parental Leave Pay may affect your existing family assistance entitlements, Child Support, and tax obligations.

    Parental Leave Pay is a taxable payment and may affect your:

    Dad and Partner Pay
    Family Tax Benefit Part A and Part B
    Child Care Benefit
    Child Support
    HECS liabilities
    Medicare Levy Surcharge
    public housing rent
    low income or other health care cards, or other associated concessions, and
    pensioner, beneficiary, dependent spouse, housekeeper and child-housekeeper tax offsets

    Family Tax Benefit Part B and the dependent spouse, child–housekeeper, and housekeeper tax offsets will not be available to you or your partner during your Paid Parental Leave period.
    These entitlements may be available to you, if you are eligible, after the end of your Paid Parental Leave period.
    If you are eligible, you can receive Family Tax Benefit Part A during your Paid Parental Leave period but you will not be eligible for the Newborn Upfront Payment and Newborn Supplement.

    Keeping in mind that it is also classified as income- the 18 weeks at minimum wage will be just over $11,500 "income" so it could impact ( depending on partners income) your eligibility for the payment
