2.3.3 PPL Scheme Income Test for DAPP


A person satisfies the income test for DAPP if the person's individual ATI for the reference income year (1.1.R.10) is not more than the relevant PPL income limit (1.1.R.30).

A father or partner who has been found eligible for PLP for a child, does not have to meet the income test again for a subsequent claim for DAPP for the child.

The PPL income limit is $150,000. Claimants whose individual ATI exceeds this income limit are not eligible for DAPP.

Note: The PPL income limit is subject to indexation starting 1 July 2020.
