1.1.R.136 Relevant period (JSP, YA)
The relevant period starts on the day of the death of the person's partner and ends when the child is born or the person is no longer pregnant. The end of the relevant period is generally determined using the expected date of confinement on the relevant day (1.1.R.120).
Example: Pei's husband Keung died on 3 April 2020. Pei receives JSP and provides a letter from her doctor advising that she is pregnant and her baby is due on 30 July 2020. The relevant period between Keung's death and Pei's expected date of confinement is 17 weeks. Pei receives an additional amount of $1,500 as part of her one-off PBV amount.
