You can get the dad/partner pay and the PPL at the same time. For the PPL there can only be one primary carer at any one time, therefore only one person can claim it at a time. The total amount available is 18 weeks but this can be split between parents in any combination.

All the above is contingent on both parents being eligible and meeting the work and income tests. Also you can't get both the PPL and the baby bonus, it's one or the other.
