    Sorry to hijack this thread :lol:

    Does anyone know if its possible to chase up whom you send the form to? I sent it over 2 weeks ago now I think, may be longer!

    Your Welcome Hun... I should know it off by heart now.

    I've been refused, and taken them over a week just to tell me that x
     
  12. ohhh ive got a question about this, i work about 17-20 hours a week and get about £70-£95 a week, im just wondering if i would be entitled to it as i have to pay £40 rent out of that a week, £20 driving lesson and about £25-£30 a week traveling, so as you can see i dont even make neough to cover my expences, never mind preparing for LO, would i be entitled to it?

    Kim - your best off ringing them to find out whether you'll be entitled - thats what i did, told them all my info, and they were able to tell me straight off that i was entitled and to just fill out the form and send it off!

    also know that average time to hear back off them is 2-4 weeks - but after 2 weeks you can start calling them to get them to do it faster, hehe.
