Hmm thanks for the input. The payroll lady at my office said "don't call & hassle me"! She reckons it's taken up to 8 weeks for some other staff to have payments coming through & our pay cycle is weekly. I think I will call centrelink 3 weeks after submitting the proof of birth & get on their case. Problem is they are so useless you get a different answer from every different centrelink employee!

I rang several times in the last 10 weeks and yes got a different response every time. All they said the last time I rang was it's being processed it won't be long.

That sucks for you it certainly was easier to do it all before hand and then take a quick pic of that back page and hit send on my phone. Made my payment come through faster than I thought too. Definitely remember for next time!!

Yeah that sucks that no one suggested to do that. What I hated the most was that it was basically the same questions as the initial 47 page application

Grrr I hate it, you seem to answer the same questions over an over again. Each person tells you something different and customer service is appalling.

My ppl took about 8 weeks to come through from my employer after proof of birth was provided (could have been 6 weeks but centrelink missed my employers pay cut off by a day or so) .

They are crazy. If only they told me I could fill out the proof of birth form beforehand

I chose to receive mine when DS was around 7 months old (towards the end of my employer paid leave). I posted that horrific paperwork back to them when he was 1 week old. Got the letter from them staying 'taiyed your PPL will start on x date, it's all approved blah blah' within a couple of weeks. Low and behold DS turned 7 months old, x date came and went. It took them 8 weeks after 'x date' to start giving my employer the money so that they could pay me! Urgh!
ETA I think with centrelink there really isn't consistency with these things. I know people who got their payments very quickly.

I got my payment before DD was 2 weeks old and I hadn't prefilled any paperwork (because they only let you do it 3 months out from your due date and DD was born earlier than that) BUT I called and spoke to a really nice woman who I think felt very sorry for my situation, she personally followed it up and ensured it was paid. That was direct paid from centrelink though so may made a difference.
So agree with PP, very inconsistent!
