    Mamas who are currently working full time but will be going to UC after 6 weeks of their full pay then turns to SMP.

    At what point did you claim UC? I’ve got ages to go yet but I’m worried about it,

    When I finish work I’ll be on 90% of my wages for 6 weeks then I’ll be on basic SMP so I’ll need to claim universal credit. (I think??? That’s right isn’t it????)


    But I’m worried as UC take up to 6 weeks to make the first payment? So when do I claim?


    Thank you Xxx
