4.3.3 Payment of instalments of PLP by employer


This section explains payment of instalments of PLP by employers (1.1.E.50). An employer is required to pay an instalment to a person if:

  • the instalment is payable to the person, and
  • an employer determination (1.1.E.60) has come into force for the employer and the person, and
  • the employer has been paid enough by Centrelink to fund the instalment.

Centrelink pays PPL funding amounts (1.1.P.180) to employers to ensure that they have been paid enough to fund an instalment.

Employers have obligations relating to paying instalments. Payment of PLP does not affect or replace any other obligations the employer has in relation to the person.
