    Just wondering if any teachers here who received maternity pay from the department and paid parental leave from gov?

    Not a teacher but pretty sure you can still receive both.

    They keep saying the laws are changing so we can't access both but I am yet to hear that it has actually passed through the senate. As far as I know you can access both at the moment. When are you due?

    You can still access both, though the govt one requires you to meet the activity test (worked x no of hours in the months before) and it is only applicable if you adjusted taxable income is less than $150k

    Thanks everyone! Just wondering those who did, did you receive at the same time or one after the other? I'm planning 28 weeks half pay.
