The 'flexible PPL period' is in relation to a child that:

  • begins on the first day after the PPL period (or PPL periods), and
  • ends on the day before the child's second birthday or anniversary of adoption to care.

For example, if a primary claimant and secondary claimant have jointly claimed PLP , then the flexible PPL period for a child will start on the day after the secondary claimant's PPL period ends. The flexible PPL period ends on the day before the child's second birthday.
