Right, cut a long story short lol. I got made redundant on 24th July with no pay (Company went into administration). So I'm currently getting £50 a week Income Support and Housing Benefit. I was due to go on Maternity leave not long after they made me redundant, so applied for Statutory maternity pay through HM Revenue and Customs (advised to by Jobcentre) I phoned them up this morning for an update as I havent heard anything, and the bloke said my application was received but they are currently working on forms in a que, and are currently on 20th July so I have quite a wait, he said if I am entitled to it I get the full 39 weeks and it will be backdated. Thing is this could take ages, and I cant live off scraps every week! My query is now, when my baby comes, what do I claim? Do I still claim Income support? Is this even possible? Sorry if none of this makes sense not good at explaining what I mean in words lol.
