    Took about 10 weeks for me. Although my employer got it a couple of weeks before that but didn't pay it to me until their normal pay cycle.

    I filled out application before bub arrived then sent proof when he was one week old. I received my first payment from my employer when my bub was 5 weeks old and it was a lump sum that included back payment. Good luck and I hope that you receive your payments quickly

    I registered online before bub and provided proof of birth when bub was one week old. The lady in the office said there is a 14 week processing time for payments, due to a backlog. If this really is the case I might have to make alternative financial arrangements to get by for a few months.
    I registered months before hand, at about 4 months pregnant when I decided what leave I was taking with work. I submitted all the paperwork with centrelink at the same time and requested what date I wanted my payments to start. I had no dramas at all.

    I registered before DS was born, took docs in when he was 10 days, but requested payments not start until the next financial year (early May birth). They started bang on time, no back payment required. I'm lucky I had mat leave to tide us over.

    What do they expect you to do in the meantime? We will be needing the money to pay our mortgage...I don't know how we would manage!
    Same here. My mortgage has the flexibility to reduce payments for 6 months after you have a kid so I am going to have to take advantage of that.

    April 2011. May have been a bit later when I registered then.

    I never had any problems getting mine, but I took my 28 weeks employer paid leave first, then the 18 weeks ppl so centrelink had plenty of time to get it organised.
