Meeting the income test

To get Parental Leave Pay, you must meet an income test.

To get Parental Leave Pay, you must have an individual adjusted taxable income of $150,000 or less. We’ll look at your income from the financial year before either:

  • the birth or adoption
  • the date you lodge your claim.

We’ll use whichever date is earlier.
