    Default Income test for PPL

    Does anyone know if centrelink does the income test on the last financial year or the financial year that you will actually be having the baby in?
    I'm having a tiny freak out as our income last financial year was over 150k (me working plus DH fringe benefits pushed us over), but for the current financial year (Bub due October) we should be under because I won't be working.
    I did do an estimate for the current financial year in the application, but just wondering if any of you lovely ladies knew the answer?

    The financial year you are claiming the Paid parental leave. And it is based on individual income under $150,000 not joint so you should be ok as long as you worked the specified hours in the 13 month period prior

    It's the financial year prior to the expected date of birth but it's only your income that needs to be under $150,000.

    Your estimated income for year claiming... I began mine in March 2016, so mine was July 2015-June 2016 financial year.

    The previous financial year and it's only your income. Example if bub is born in Sept 2016, it goes on your income from July 2015-June 2016.

    Oh thank you! I thought it was combined income. I don't even make a quarter of that with my measly 15 hours a week!
