    Default 457 visa and Paid Parental Leave

    Hi there

    Just wondered if anyone else is/has been in my situation. I'm 28 weeks pregnant and currently on a 457 visa but applying for PR at the moment. There is little/no chance my visa will be granted before the birth and I won't be entitled to Paid Parental Leave. The paperwork states you must be resident from the date of babies birth, but I have heard of other women in this situation gaining the payment when they have gained residency, after the baby is born. Has this happened for anyone recently?

    The thought of not receiving this financial assistance is causing me a lot of stress I just feel worried all the time

    Thanks

    I thought you could claim it up to 12 months after the birth so perhaps you can claim it at that time?! Don't know for sure though.

    Will your employer give you any paid leave to help financially?

    The best thing to do is give Centrelink a call and see if there's anything they can do.
