Hi everyone, I’m 25 weeks pregnant and knew right from the beginning I was on my own with this -( I am unbelievable happily pregnant though)
I’m am currently waiting on my letter from work to tell me what maternity payments will be for the year I am off what I’m wondering though and can’t find out anywhere is …. If my maternity pay drops so low in March that I can’t afford my rent etc am I allowed to make a claim in February so that I’m covered?
I’ve never dealt with benefits before so its all very daunting and I would like to be prepared so I know how I’m going to manage.
I hope I have explained myself well enough, my describing things is not on point since being pregnant!
You will get full pay for a few months then it will drop to half pay then smp which is around £500 a month. I went back to work when my daughter was 10 months as the money was awful. I have a mortgage but relied on my savings for a while .
I had to contribute towards the nursery as it can be quite expensive
