    Default Govt PPL Question?

    So question is - I was going to be paid the govt PPL through my employer. However, I've just resigned (will finish up 1 week before bub is born) so I will need to be paid the Govt PPL through centrelink now.

    Does anyone know how I go about changing this with Centrelink?

    I'm trying to find a time when I can happily sit on hold for a few hours to speak to them, but thought I'd try here too in case anyone else has had to do this recently.

    P.S. I'm registered for Centrelink through MyGov if that helps. Don't know if there's a way to do it on there?

    A miracle happened! I called centrelink and got through within 3 minutes! 😮

    Just thought I'd update in case it helps anyone else in future -

    - Go to MyGov and into your Centrelink account.
    - Go to the menu and select 'Paid Parental Leave Scheme > Paid Parental Leave Circumstances'
    - Click on the link for 'View/update resignation/termination of employment'
    - Enter the date of cessation of employment (cannot be a future date), and click on update.

    Easy peasy! ☺
