    Yep. I asked to be paid direct from centrelink and they told me no and that they were paying it to my employer who would then take tax out and pay it to me in the regular pay cycle.

    I am Currently looking into it. You can no longer get the PPL directly from the Centrelink which I prefer. Yes, you can take them concurrently. I would do so just in case the rules change in the near future. The govt PPL will help me to stay at home a bit longer with the bub after employer PPL ceases. It isn't "double dipping".....

    As long as she's due before July 1 2016 ( and the double dipping rule still hasn't pasted to my knowledge) she can claim leave provided by you and the centerlink money.
    The centerlink money she has to apply for directly and can elect to have it paid by you or straight form centerlink

    Default Paid parental leave and double dipping

    Generally the government paid leave is paid through your employer, not Centrelink.
    When I went to Centrelink the other week. I was told that I could not receive PPL and receive money from my employer at the same time.... (My employer wants to 'top up' or 'supplement' the PPL as their is a vast difference between my normal salary and PPL))

    It wouldn't surprise me if I was told BS though. They don't seem to give me straight answers anytime I talk to them about PPL.

    I've always taken mine concurrently and will be doing so again when #3 arrives shortly.
