Really looking for some advice as i am really fed up now. I stopped working and took my maternity leave in November. My OH only works 18 hours so his wage isnt enough to cover our living expenses. My emplyer wont pay me maternity pay as i havent worked there long enough. I also cant claim maternity allowance. Ive got a claim going for Employment and support allowance but i am still 2 months later waiting to hear if i can deffo claim that. but if i am able to i can only claim up to two weeks after my baby is born which was last week. so now i dont know what i claim....does anyone know if i can claim anything?
