I wanted to know if anyone who didn't qualify for maternity pay or allowance had any advice. At least I don't think that I qualify....
I was made redundant this time last year and been looking for work in between having IVF treatment (it failed and this is a natural pregnancy in between further treatment).....I haven't been able to secure a job in my previous career, so have more recently been doing interviews in other fields.
I am approaching 16 weeks now and will struggle to find a job at this stage I think as I am showing.
So - I am not sure I will qualify for any maternity benefits as I live with my partner and have not had any income since I got made redundant. I used some savings to survive until a few months ago and then applied for contributions based Job Seekers allowance which I think is for max 6 months, which will end in November.
Does anyone know any organisations that could help advise me? Or anyone else been in this situation....
I am due in February.
