Hello Ladies

Im just trying to fill in the online application for PPL. My due date is 24 June 2015. I would like my PPL to come into effect as soon as the baby is born as I will be heading back to work (14 hours from home) 12 weeks later so want to get as much PPL as I can before I'm no longer eligible.

My question is what happens if the baby comes early? Should I put my start date for PPL as her due date or a couple of weeks early just in case?

Also in your experience is it easier to just get paid direct via Centrelink or via employer for PPL?
