1.1.P.50 Payability

Payability for PLP

To be payable for PLP on one or more flexible PPL days, a claimant must:

  • have made an effective claim (1.1.E.10) for PLP
  • be eligible on each day, and
  • verify the child's birth.

Some claimants are not payable unless another person has met the work test requirements and some claimants require permission for days in order to be payable (5.2.2).

PLP is not payable for more than one child in a multiple birth.
