    Hi everyone

    Does anyone know how long it takes to hear back about maternity allowance?

    I sent my forms off almost two weeks ago, but still haven't heard anything.

    Thanks

    Sam

    I sent mine off on the 1st April (you can't send it in before you start your Maternity leave/while your still being paid by work) and received a letter from them about 2 weeks ago.

    Had to sign it and send it back. Received another letter early last week and had my first payment today. (They did backdate it to the 1st April for me)

    I'm in the same area as you so it should be the same office that deals with it.

    dont worry hun, if you're getting maternity pay from your employer you dont need to do anything else, this is for maternity allowance when you get payed from the gov if you dont qualify for maternity pay from work :hugs:
