Telling us about a change of circumstances
You need to tell us if your circumstances change when you get Parental Leave Pay.
What to tell us
You need to tell us if any of the following things change:
- you return to work or are no longer employed
- you have worked or are planning to work on a day you want to access Flexible Paid Parental Leave
- you're no longer your child’s primary carer
your personal and contact details
you're leaving the country, temporarily or to live somewhere else.
You need to tell us about a change in your circumstances straight away. For some changes, if you don’t, we may pay you too much. This means you’ll have a debt you need to pay back.
How to tell us
If we haven't assessed your claim yet, call the Families line.
