    What else am i intilted to?
    Im completely lost on all of this xxx

    if it is maternity allowance it will continue, if it is statutory maternity pay you wil be liable to payback to your employer anything you recieved over and above 123 a week (6 weeks at 90% for ex)
    you dont mention child benefit?

    there are certain benefits you aren't entitled to when you have given up your job so best check with CAB and job centre.

    You dont have to pay back the 6 weeks @ 90%. That is part of the SMP. Not employer specific.

    I have worked as a payroll clerk and you do not have to pay back the 90%! All you would have to pay back is any money your employer adds to SMP (for eg, some employers pay full pay for x amount of weeks and SMP for the rest - you would have to pay back the difference between the SMP element and the SMP). The 90% of wage is part of SMP and depending on the size of the company, they can claim the majority back from the govt.

    I don't think you can get IS until you have finished your SMP/MA.

    Good luck.
