    Default Getting paid a bonus and PPL

    Hi everyone, so my first baby is due September 23 and I will be applying for PPL. My work however have just told me that they are willing to pay me my bonus in split payments while I am on maternity leave (on top of ppl).

    I won't be saving sick leave or annual leave in this time. Is this ok to do? I don't want to get in trouble for it. Thanks!

    Oh cool! Thanks ladies! Was hoping it would be ok as I was happy my bonus would be split up like that (less tax and ppl isn't a huge amount of money).

    You can also choose when your PPL starts and finishes, as long as your last PPL is paid to you before bub is 1 year old.

    So if you're worried you could wait until your bonus has been paid before getting the PPL.

    Allie that would be great but baby is due sept 23 and I'm returning to work jan 27. So I wouldn't have time to fit in ppl and a bonus separately.
