Change of circumstances while receiving Dad and Partner Pay

You need to tell us if your circumstances change while receiving Dad and Partner Pay.

For example, if:

  • you don't have care of your child during your Dad and Partner Pay period
  • you work or take paid leave during your Dad and Partner Pay period
  • you leave Australia, even for a short time, or
  • you change your address

You must tell us as soon as possible about changes to your circumstances that may affect your Dad and Partner Pay entitlement.

If you're self employed, you can keep an eye on your business without losing your Dad and Partner Pay. This means you can oversee your business operations and perform occasional administrative tasks.

We’re testing a new website design. Try it out and tell us what you think. Read more about changes to this site.
