5.2.2 When DAPP is paid

When DAPP is paid

If Centrelink makes a payability determination after the start of the DAPP period that DAPP is payable to a person for a child (6.3.2), Centrelink must pay DAPP as soon as practicable after making the determination.

If the payability determination is made before the start of the person's DAPP period (2.3.8) DAPP will be paid by Centrelink as soon as possible after the start of the DAPP period.

If the payability determination has been made, and the person's DAPP start date has been reached, Centrelink will pay DAPP directly to the person's nominated bank account. Payment should be received by a person in 2 business days after Centrelink makes the payment.
