I've been advised by customer service peeps at C-link it wouldn't take longer than 3 weeks max, I guess it depends on if you're already approved and just need the "baby has arrived" paperwork. It took about 3-4 weeks last time I claimed 5 years ago.

Anyway we will see, I will manage if I have to wait awhile but ideally it'll be set up really quickly and I can enjoy the silly season without stressing about $$!

In 2013, from memory mine was probably about 8 weeks. I get queries from staff at work about their PPL taking so long; we've seen delays up to 12 weeks in the past, purely due to Centrelink being slow, nothing to do with the person claiming it taking too long to submit their paperwork. Its a bit ridiculous!

Update: mine will start to be paid 20th dec. DS was born 16th oct. Thats 8 weeks.
The paperwork never got to my work, it's just disappeared!
So I spent an hour on the phone chasing it up. Someone from the PPL team called my payroll officer & sorted it out then actually called me to let me know.
If you haven't heard anything after a few weeks of submitting your claim definitely chase it up with Centrelink.

Both time I've claimed PPL I've had it approved within 2 weeks but I don't elect to receive it till later on (3-4mths later). The lady in Centrelink said it's better to physically hand it in as with the postal service so slow these days it just adds time. With my last bub I dropped off the paperwork a week after bub was born.
