Extending PPL Period after Review


A person's PPL period (1.1.P.200) may be extended by an additional period following a review. If one or more instalments would have been payable in relation to the additional period, assuming the payability determination had always included the additional period and Centrelink had been required to pay the instalments, and Centrelink is not otherwise required to pay the instalments, then the instalments are taken to be payable on the respective paydays for the instalments.

Centrelink is required to pay these earlier instalments.
