4.1 Claims for PLP
Centrelink cannot make a determination that PLP is payable to a person for a child for a period unless the person has made an effective claim. Only a natural person can make a claim.
There are 3 types of claim:
- a primary claim,
- a secondary claim, and
- a tertiary claim.
An effective claim must be in the form approved by Centrelink for the claim type and be made by a person who can make that type of claim.
