Right, it says on DWP website that to claim maternity allowance you have to have worked atleast 26wks out of 66wks up until the week before your baby is born. This can also include maternity leave. So if ive already worked 26wks out of those 66 but am being made redundant at the end of this month does that mean i will be able to claim MA? Sorry if i sound abit thick but it has got my head done in, its so bloody complicated!!
