    Default paid parental leave

    Hi all,
    I'm trying to work out if I am eligible for the current PPL of 622.00 per week or whatever it is... Is it means tested? I'm on about 62k annually before tax, but hubby is on much more than that... would I still be eligible for the current scheme? I've been at this employer for over 12 mths and am an Aus citizen etc. Baby is due in mid Dec.
    Any help would be appreciated as we are doing up our post baby budget tonight!
    Thanks

    It is means tested but you are below the threshold. So yes sound like you will be eligible

    ETA you will receive $640.90 pw before tax for 18 weeks

    Yep it's only based on your salary - so you'll get it. It's about $900 a fortnight

    So hubby's wage won't effect it? Yippee! That money will definitely help!
    Thank you.

    no it won't. you're the one having to stop working to have the baby after all!
    I edited my earlier post to give you the amount, so it's $640.90 per week before tax.

    Thank you very much for responding - I'm so used to never being eligible for anything assistance wise, I thought this would be the same.

    Yes me too!
    Also remember once you have bubba if you use Childcare, you are eligible for child care rebate 50% costs up to $7.5k per child. Childcare rebate CCR is separate to childcare benefit CCB and you are eligible regardless of your family salary. It's not means tested like the Childcare benefit CCB.

    Did I read the right, $640 pw for 18 weeks?? Is it a percentage of your wage? I'm only part time 20 hrs a week but earn about $700 pw will I get $640 too?

    Yes, it has nothing to do with hubby's wage. As long as you meet the work requirements you will receive it.
