Help with maternity allowance/statmatpay


Hi everyone im soo confused. i havent a clue whether il get statotry allowance again or mat allowance this time.

here is my situation.

Started matleave january 2013 ( daughter born feb 26 2013)

Matleave finishes january 2014 ( so i used the last 3 months of unpaid)

return to work january 10th.

New mat leave for new baby starts march 13th 2014 ( baby due april 3rd)

I get 6 months of inhanced pay ( i think full) and then what?

I dont know if i will get mat pay because of those last 3 months of unpaid?

How long have i got to apply for it?
Becuase i dont return to work till jan 10th it cant be sorted till then so i wont know if i qualify etc till late!

help! im so confused about it all

I'm sure you'll still qualify as although you were off unpaid on maternity leave you were still employed!
Ring the job centre or citizens advice x

i didn't quite under the dircet gov website the info on there is pretty good though.
i spoke to my managa about and i got a letter from the company a few weeks ago telling what i can get how long i'm intitled to have off.

You will still qualify for SMP. Maternity leave, even the unpaid part, still counts as full time employment. X
