When my husband quit work because he had started studying he was told his austudy claim would take 6 weeks to process due to 4 week backlog. He handed in all forms. Missed a call from them. Rang back next day because documentation was supposedly missing. They canceled his claim! !! The documentation was right there on the system! He called 5 weeks later and next business day it was processed. We claimed extreme financial hardship which was the truth. Because we received ftb we weren't considered extreme case. Don't know how u r expected to pay bills/rent/food/petrol on $1200 a month. My parenting payment went through in 2 days but Austudy takes 4- 6 weeks!
In 2010 the baby bonus took 4 weeks to be processed.

VP I got mine approx 2 weeks after providing proof of birth. That was Oct 2013. They backdated it to the due date I had provided in pregnancy.

Ok Vic park
Just got off the phone to cl
There are two things that can delay it:
She said that even tho an application is put in as early as 12 weeks before due date, your employer needs to accept that application. If they accept it say 1 week before your due date then that would delay by 2 weeks past due date
Another common reason for this to happen is that the employer when accepting application needs to tick a box saying how often they will process the ppl pay. They can choose weekly, fortnightly, monthly or even every 6 weeks. She said employers that tick the 6 week box generally are worried that they may not have enough funds to pay you straight away
So your employer guess has accepted application very late, maybe even after the birth and has ticked the 6 week box to allow them to save the money to pay you.
She told me my employer has ticked fortnightly so I will get 1st pay the closest to pay day.
So apparently it's not cl backlog it's waiting for employers to accept and cl are just waiting to put money in as they have ticked a high frequency to save money in that time
Hope this makes sense vic

My employer is a large one and last time paid my ppl fortnightly.... I don't think there is any concern on that front...
My local centrelink lady could very well be wrong. Either way I've asked for the reduction on my mortgage to be bought forward just incase... Who knows when my ppl will start...

I'm not waiting for ppl but my DH is waiting for austudy. He put forms in over a month ago and still hasn't received anything. Spoke to centrelink today and they have said there is high demand in payments and a huge backlog in all areas and to expect another 3-4 week wait, if not longer.
Also don't know if it's just for austudy or all payments but she said they are up to processing claims made on the 30 jan, 2 weeks ago they were processing claims for the 21st jan so a very slow process.

Our baby bonus for DD2 and fathers/partners leave was paid in about a week (ftb went up quite quickly too), she was born last December. Ppl with DD1 went through a little bit quicker (September 2012). We had the paperwork done before the due date and had it pre approved, than we took the papers in in person. I also rang to see how my application was going after a few days and it got approved and put through as I was speaking to them. Even if it's a long wait, talking to them is often worth the wait Good luck with it all
