    Default PPL questions...

    Last time I received PPL I was paid straight from the government not my employer - is this still an option?

    I thought that if you were employed, it had to be paid by your employer.

    I've been looking into this as well - it was my understanding that if you've been at your workplace for more than 12 months they pay it - if you have been employed at your current workplace for less than that time they can opt out of paying so then Centrelink does it.....but I also could have totally misunderstood the information I was reading.

    In 2012 I opted to have it paid by Centrelink. I'm hoping and it seems that it is, still the same.

    I am receiving it now and having it paid by my employer. I was told that it had changed since I had been paid it last time being that it has to be paid by your employer, no longer paid by centrelink.
