5.1.1 DAPP claims & claimants


A claim for DAPP is not effective unless all the requirements for an effective claim are satisfied (5.1.3).

A DAPP claim that does not meet these requirements or does not contain all the information required by Centrelink is not an effective claim and is taken to not have been made. A claim that is not effective cannot be determined by Centrelink.

A claimant whose DAPP claim is not effective may claim again under the PPL scheme.
