I should have added... I do think 500-600 per week is a fair amount for the PPL!

I think that $500-600 is fair for PPL. That's what DP earns now.
I know I'm going back off topic, but isn't full rate of PPS (C'link) $600 and then FTB for one child $300 a fortnight approximately? So the weekly income for a single parent is about $450 a week, which is below minimum wage?
I understand that there are also concessions, e.g. health care and CCB at full rate.

Not that I think it is enough, no way in hell could I survive but for a single parent max fortnightly payments are
FTB A&B 300
Rent assist 119
So $1060 ($530 a week)
They need to bump it up a bit more, at least another $25 a week if not the extra $50 a week to make it minimum wage.

I agree luv my boys - I think really SPP should be the same as PPP & new start combined. Because really having A partner (without an income) or not your child & household expenses will be the same really. I don't think it's fair.
