4.2 Payments of PLP


PLP is funded by the Australian Government out of consolidated revenue. In most cases the eligible person's employer will provide their PLP after being funded by the Australian Government to do so. Centrelink will provide PLP directly to eligible claimants who do not receive it from their employer.
