I am Currently looking into it. You can no longer get the PPL directly from the Centrelink which I prefer. Yes, you can take them concurrently. I would do so just in case the rules change in the near future. The govt PPL will help me to stay at home a bit longer with the bub after employer PPL ceases. It isn't "double dipping".....
The centerlink money she has to apply for directly and can elect to have it paid by you or straight form centerlink
It wouldn't surprise me if I was told BS though. They don't seem to give me straight answers anytime I talk to them about PPL.

I've always taken mine concurrently and will be doing so again when #3 arrives shortly.
