    I just gave them DDs due date and then sent through her proof of birth after she was born.

    Whaaaaat? I was all ragey and stressed at the time as I read it as 'we need the right DOB and you can't enter in advance'. So doing it sometime this week now. Or next week lol. Thanks for that.

    I heard it's just registering. you can register up to 3 months prior to when you intend to claim (so up to 3 months before your EDD). I'm in the process of registering now. it's painful already, not looking forward to my centrelink visit on Monday lol

    They might tell you to do it online yourself. That is about how helpful it is going in now as far as I know

    I think you might be able to even be paid the PPL before bub is born, ie from when you finish up at work. Not 100% sure as I didn't do this but think you can.

    Yup, when I applied for PPL 7 months ago I went in and they were amazingly helpful. Perfect customer service. I went in this week to sort out child care rebate and useless!! Couldn't answer a basic question, they told me to ring up and ask because they didn't know the answer. Sigh, the whole point of going in was to avoid being on hold for ages.

    No you can't. You can only be paid once you have the baby in your care.

    You have to prove you've had the baby, they won't pay anything with no proof.
