9.2 Nominees

Introduction

This chapter details nominee arrangements and responsibilities.

There are 2 types of nominee arrangements, 'payment nominees' and 'correspondence nominees'. There can only be one person appointed for each type of arrangement although the same person can be appointed as both payment and correspondence nominee for a PLP or DAPP recipient.

If the appointment is for PLP, Centrelink may direct that the whole or a specified part of instalments payable to the nominee's principal be paid to the nominee. Notices under the PPLAct can be sent to a person's correspondence nominee.

If the appointment is for DAPP, Centrelink may direct that the whole or a specified part of a payment of DAPP payable to the nominee's principal be paid to the nominee.

Centrelink may, in writing, appoint a person to be the correspondence nominee of another person for the purposes of PLP or DAPP, or both.
