    i don't know if there are any helpline numbers to ring...do they not pay if you have had the baby?? even if its born after 6th April...theres bound to be a backlog of applications...x

    I heard they were only starting to process the forms at the beginning of April and that pay out could be around May time. I expect my wee man to have arrived before the grant money comes in. I have already spent the money so really could do with knowing when its coming in.

    They can't sign it until you are over 25wks, I remember there being a section on the form how many wks/days you are at time of signing.

    I know some other people tried to get it signed before 25wks and mws won't do it as its specifically for over 25wks,

    I would either change your appointment or arrange to go and collect your form when you are 25wks.

    They can sign them in advance of 25 weeks. i got mine really early and she just pre dated it.

    I have an awful feeling that loads of us will never see htis £190 though, I dont know why, I just think they have had this planned for years but no one has seen any £££ yet. They should have been on the ball with it.

    Just called the helpline and was told they cant even say whether the forms have been received yet. I sent mine off a week ago recorded delivery but they advised to call back next week with NI number and it may then be on the system., fingers crossed, dont mind waiting for it as long as they do actually pay the grant.

    I spoke to them today too and was told basically the same - although the guy said we should expect to have something by around the end of april beginning of may - they are telling people end of may at the very latest though.
