Centrelink dads payment

Hi,

I'm an Australian citizen living in Australia and my child will hopefully be born overseas around mid-June. Would I be elligible for dad's payment from centrelink if I get Paternity leave from my employer?

Thanks very much

Best to check with Centrelink. Usually they do not pay if you are getting paid by your job.

There may be issues if the birth is overseas.

Your problem is that the payment goes to the principle care giver, and they are the ones who must meet the residency requirements. Check the link, but looks like you will get nothing.

This page: http://www.humanservices.gov.au/cust...nd-partner-pay says that if you are on paid leave from work you will not get it.

You mentioned earlier you will on parernity leave I presume that is paid leave.

OP: Make sure you call 3 times though just to make sure the information is correct. We know how govt departments give incorrect answers. If all 3 give the same answer that is a good sign
