    I am not sure I understand your question? Are you eligable for SMP? Or MA? Its one or the other not both.

    Are you already on maternity leave?

    No it wont slow things down. It took two weeks from me sending the form off to processing. It will of course depend on when you want to go on maternity leave.

    I have been employed by this employer in my 15th week but not for the 26weeks before the 15th week, so wont be entitled to smp but need smp form to pass on with mat allowance form to say im not entitled. Sooo confusing, I hate filling in forms at the best of times even harder when employers dont know weather they are coming or going!
    It is 11weeks befor but have to send the form off so many weeks befor your 11weeks.

    11 weeks is the minimum but you can do it as late as the birth if you want. i'm not eligable until 24th june when i will be 35 weeks so i will be sending mine then :flower:
