I've just started claiming and it took about 2 weeks until first payment. I have a question....I have my income for the last tax year but it was lower than usual due to maternity pay. I'm a bit nervous that I'll end up owing them when I supply this years earning as it will be higher. Does anyone reading have experience of this?? (sorry to hijack the thread op). Lol at the "I'd have left him years ago@ comment.....that's what I thought too. You don't need to send details of where tje ex p is living....

I would think you should get a payment this week fuzzy I was told 10 working days. Keep checking your bank too as my money went in before my letter came through.

I made a similar call last weekend. Does anybody know how long it takes for the payments to come through? They stopped my payments while it's processing, which means I'm really struggling in the meantime!

Do you have to tell them how much your xp gives you?

No, just give them a date your relationship ceased.

I'm going to be making a similar phone call shortly too. Do you have to provide proof that you have separated?
