    In this case, you are mistaken about the proposal. It was dollars not weeks.

    I get 12 weeks from work, but would have gotten no govt ppl due to being paid more than the 18 weeks at min wage was worth.

    As per this article in the financial review 'this system was based on total funds...'

    Maybe look for information on government websites rather than news sites http://www.humanservices.gov.au/corp...amilies/002146
    Then follow links will review terms

    Your first link I interpret exactly as I'm already saying where they top you up to your entitlement (hence based on $ not weeks)

    Anyway, we're clearly going round and round in circles. The updated news in the last 24 hours wouldn't be there had the previous proposal been based on weeks and not total $.

    I'll leave it at that

    "The Government will pay the difference between Primary Carer Pay and Parental Leave Pay where the Primary Carer Pay is less than the individual’s Parental Leave Pay entitlement."

    Minimum wage is $657, if you earn $200 they pay the $457 difference

    Ok so I thought they were looking at it as a whole. So 18 weeks at $657 is $11,826.
    So if your work paid 12 weeks but it totaled more than $11,826, then you'd get nothing. So $1000 per week for 12 weeks is $12,000. That's over the $11,826 so you wouldn't get anything.
    Are you saying that you'd get nothing for the first 12 weeks, and then after that you'd get $657 for the remaining 6 weeks because it's more than the $0 you are now getting?

    Yes you'll get the $657 for the remaining 6 weeks

    The budgetary savings they are talking about is from only paying 6 not 18 weeks to you

    The system ( both now and proposed) is actually beneficial for those earning less than $657 ( but meet work criteria) as the government Will pay $657 for up to 18 weeks even if you normally earn less

    None of this has passed in parliament yet so the details could likely change too.

    Wondering if anyone might be able to help.

    I've just applied for PPL for my bub who is due end of March (so I beat the cutoff date). I get paid for 14 weeks from my employer, which I'm opting to take at half pay, so stretching it out to 28 weeks.

    I want the PPL to start when my employer may leave runs out, but that will be after the July date. So my question is, because bubs will be born before the cut off date will I still receive it to start in August?

    No idea but could you take the government PPL first, then your employer leave?
