Maternity benefits

Recommended Posts

Hello all,

My scenario: - Husband earns around $20,000 p.a. through part time contracting work, Wife is on a full time salary of about $80,000.

They are expecting their first child soon in April 2020 and wife will go on Materntiy Leave sometime in late March 2020/early April 2020. They are permanent residents for over 2 years.

What are the benefits from Centrelink that they can apply?

There are many factors, residence rest, income test, work test. Visit the department of Human Services website for the details to see whether the criteria for each are met and therefore what the expected payment may be.
