    I think MA comes under the same timescales as SMP....so it will start at 29 weeks for a 26 week period.

    depends on when they process it as to when you start to be paid though. Hope you get some news soon.

    You'll start getting it after 29wks i think and its paid for 39wks. Not sure how long it'll take to get paid into your bank though, their not the quickest at sorting things out!!
