How long did it take for your claim to be processed/for you to start being paid? I filed my claim on March 30, after I was well enough to get out after I left the hospital and I'm still waiting. I'm annoyed, I haven't gotten paid in over a month.. how much longer should I be waiting to hear from them/for my claim to go through? My account online says they have received the claim and are doing their best to process it in a timely matter or something & that I'll find out when a decision has been made. I thought I was entitled to my maternity benefits and there was no decision to be made? And I was under the impression for some reason they handled them within 28 days.. it's coming up to that! I saved quite a bit of money but with a new baby, expenses come up & I have bills.. I don't want to apply for Ontario Works (social assistance) and I don't think I can even apply for it/get it while waiting for an EI claim to be processed!
