2.3.3 PPL scheme income test for DAPP

Introduction

A person satisfies the income test for DAPP if the person's individual ATI for the reference income year (1.1.R.10) is not more than the relevant PPL income limit (1.1.R.30). Claimants whose individual ATI exceeds the income limit are not eligible for DAPP.

A father or partner who has been found eligible for PLP for a child, does not have to meet the income test again for a subsequent claim for DAPP for the child.

The PPL income limit (1.1.P.190) is subject to indexation on 1 July each year.
