Hi ladies ,
just wondering after you provided proof of birth, how long did it take you to receive your first payment from your employer provided by centrelink thanks in advance x

I provided everything on 22nd April and have just received notice that my first payment (which will include backdated payments from 22nd April) will be made to my workplace on 29th may and they will then pay it to me, so about 4-5 weeks

My first baby was 10 weeks and that was hurried along as I constantly called asking for it. Second baby was approved by the time he was 4 weeks old but I didn't start it til he was 12 weeks

About 12 weeks - Centrelink sent it to my employer about 3 weeks before that but I had to wait for the next regular pay date.

I submitted all paperwork about 2wks after DD2 was born and was approved about a week later. But I asked to be paid 4mths later as I had work mat leave and annual leave to use first. I had a total of 8mths off paid leave.

I have booked annual and long service leave, then work maternity leave and then PPL, so they should have plenty of notice.
I think it's bizarre that they provide a payment intended to help women continue to support themselves during time on maternity leave, then leave them waiting for the money to come in. Mortgage payments and other life expenses don't just stop, after all.

I didn't have anything online filled out because my DD was born earlier than the 3 months before your EDD restriction they put on being able to complete it. I filled out the hard copy form with proof of birth and posted 2 days after DD was born, I called a few days later when I was discharged and the woman I spoke to personally processed it and I had my first payment 2 weeks after DD was born.
i didn't have an employer to go through as I'm self employed, so the money was paid straight from centre link. So from my experience compared with others, perhaps it is the employer step that is the hold up and not CL?
