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