1.1.C.143 Conditional eligibility determination


Where a person makes a claim under the PPLAct section 13, section 14, section 15, section 16, section 17A or section 17B, Centrelink must make a conditional eligibility determination for the person if:

  • Centrelink determines that PLP is not payable to the person under the relevant section because they do not meet one of the eligibility criteria, and
  • Centrelink is satisfied that the person satisfies the work test and the income tests.

The purpose of a conditional eligibility determination is to ensure that people who have already applied for PLP in relation to a child do not have to resubmit an initial claim form and provide work test and income test information multiple times for the same child.
