5.1.4 Requirements for acceptance notice by employer of employer determination for PLP


An acceptance notice of an employer determination must contain:

  • a declaration to the effect that the employer accepts their obligation to pay instalments to the person
  • bank account information for the employer which will identify an account held and maintained by the employer with a financial institution into which PPL funding amounts (1.1.P.180) can be paid by Centrelink, including
    • the bank account number
    • the Bank State Branch (BSB) number of the account
    • the name in which the account is held
    • the name of the financial institution, and
  • the relevant pay cycle information for the person, including
    • the person's usual pay period
    • the first day of the person's pay period that overlaps with the start of their continuous flexible period (1.1.C.145)
    • the pay day and the payroll cut-off day for the person's usual pay period.

Exception: An employer is not required to include the employer's bank account information if the employer has elected to provide PLP that applies to the person and the acceptance notice contains a declaration to the effect that the bank account information already provided by the employer in the context of the election is correct for the person.
