I got made redundant back in October and have been working cash in hand since (stupid i know!) this means that i wont be able to get SMP or MA... right? So I can get income support from 29 weeks (how much is this?) and then when the babies born i'll get child tax credits (approx amount?) and child benefit (£20 a week right?) any the i heard something about IB- now ESA for 8 weeks around the birth, is that on top of the income support?! I'll be a single parent in rented accomodation, i understand that HB and CTB will pretty much cover this tho i may need to pay a little bit... I'm just wondering approx how much i will get from 29 weeks and then from when the babies born? I know you're not all psychic but wondering if anyone is in the same situation as me and can tell me approx what they get? thanks in advance!
