    When I put in for mine - which seems like ages ago, my midwife said not to expect it before the end of May and I'm due the end of May - so much for health in pregnancy - it will be almost over by then!!!

    I was told sometime after beginning of May to due to the backlog, although there must be some people that will get it in April.

    I think once its fully up and running mums to be will get the money as soon as they send form off but as its only starting from Monday I guess it will take a while for them to get through everyone that has claimed since January !

    They cant pay any funds out until the new tax year, they will start with the back log first i'd imagine but it shouldnt be too long till we get them! xx

    when you ring the helpline it says that no one is getting any money til may! :shock: they will start sorting through the applications after 6th april apparently and then start making payments after that.

    My midwife told me when I got the form that you can only get one form and wrote down the date she gave it to me and the form number in my maternity notes. I sent the form recorded delivery and Royal Mail have lost it :hissy::hissy: As the form has no actual value all I'll get is the postage cost back despite the fact them losing it means I'll lose out on £190 :hissy:

    Jan - March mums will get paid first in April, then everyone else. Just been on the site, until tax year they can't do anything, defeats all of us with Early EDD 6th april onwards to have money in last 2 months of pregnancy! BUT I suppose they have to start somewhere, and it's money we weren't going to have...

    I agree its got to start somewhere. Personally Im not to concerned if I get the money in April, May or even July !!! Its money that I wouldn't otherwise be getting and Id rather wait than miss out on it like the mums who were due just before the 6th April.

    I was supposed to get my form last week but saw a different midwife again who said my own midwife had all the forms locked away in her case which was with her! I am back at midwife in 4 weeks and should get the form then.

    I was told that there will be a backlog and that the forms won't be sorted out until the start of the new tax year which is tomorrow! As long as I get the money then fine but I'm not due until June.

    I was quite shocked 'cause I'd forgotten all about this, but then when I went to see my MW the other day (who wasn't the one I've normally seen), she just filled in the form and handed it to me, telling me all about it.

    I think after they've handed out all the current forms floating around that's it too 'cause they've run out, which is a shame for people who don't already have them and need them.

    I personally think it's a rubbish idea that hasn't really been implemented very well, much like the Winter Fuel Allowance for Senior Citizens - even the Queen is entitled to claim that, so it therefore means that these grants go to anyone, even those with vast amounts of money who don't really need it... I'm not so sure that's fair, and the money could be used for better things probably.
    I myself won't be applying for it.
