I have an idea there was a must have worked for an "X" period of time and thought that was 2 years to qualify. But that's just a random memory and don't even know why I would have read it.

Thanks, I know you need to work 10 months out of the 13 months before the baby is born. I am just unsure whether 820 visa holders are eligible.

My guess is it is an employment right and would be treated similar to Family Tax Benefits. Again it is just a guess.

Last I heard 820 holders were eligible, unless things have changed - I know Centrelink had a few changes last year, but not sure if that affected the parenting payments or not.

The best thing to do is to go and talk to Centrelink.

Seems it is certainly worth a bit of a wait at the Centerlink office. Be sure to let us know when you find out.
