I'm about three weeks out of getting maternity pay!! I'm 22 weeks currently and I will be getting my Matb1 form from my GP as I don't see my midwife untill 28 weeks, from other people's experience the GP just asks them what there due date is and puts it on the form! We will struggle big time if I don't receive any maternity pay I will have to return to work after 2 months and I plan to breastfeed so it's not going to be possible otherwise. The pay is stressing me out so much that I'm thinking about moving my EDD by 3 weeks!? Help any advice ? Anyone been through similar ?
Is it possible to lie about your dates by 3 weeks??!! ... - NCT
No it’s not possible to lie Hun x you start your maternity from 29weeks and after . You can work up until around a week if possible anyway. I couldn’t t as I’ve a very active job as have spd so have to go in early then wanted 29 weeks but also took a holiday the week before which is full Pays you also when on maternity build up your holiday entitledment up to depending on what your entitled to . I get 28 days a year so taken that the week I’m due back so getting 9 month maternity basic maternity pay the 14 holiday pay full. Hope that helps. You by law are entitled to 1 year off 9 month paid x
How do you know you’ll be three weeks out? I am wondering about this. I just found out I’m pregnant and start a new job in September. I don’t know how to work out if I’ll be entitled to maternity pay!
Any advice would be appreciated.
This all depends on the employer and how long you would of been working for them before. Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP)
To qualify for SMP you must:
earn on average at least £116 a week
give the correct notice
give proof you’re pregnant
have worked for your employer continuously for at least 26 weeks continuing into the ‘qualifying week’ - the 15th week before the expected week of childbirth
Hope that helps xx
