Payslips for Maternity Allowance

(6 Posts)

I’m 30 weeks pregnant and trying to apply for maternity allowance but I need to supply 13 weeks of payslips.

I got made redundant earlier in the year and my access to the payslip system has been removed and my emails asking for copies/Access are being ignored. What can I do?

I’ve got payslips for work since then but I’ve earned much less on these and quite a chunk I’ve been off sick.

I’m getting really confused by it all blush

Are/were you in a union? Can you go to the office? Have you written an email stating the importance of these payslips and that you will be left with no choice but to seek legal advice if you do not receive them? (Usually works a treat). You need to be stern on the phone, you sound quite nice. You need to be a bit badass about it!

I do think maybe I’m being too nice, after threatening the small claims court over the redundancy and my final pay I’m getting fed up of dealing with it all.

Tomorrow I’m going to call again and do my best hormonal, heavily pregnant lady sass and stamp my feet a bit.

No union and it was a very small start up company, I’m not allowed to drive at the moment due to a medical problem so the trek to the office would be tricky but could be last resort.

I hoped I could send screenshots of bank statements with pay going in and my P60 as proof instead!

@Icklepickle101 what a nightmare for you OP. Definitely ditch the niceness! Also pregnant here and can tell you those hormones come in handy!!

If it's a small company, tell them you're writing to your local MP. That might give them a kick up the bum!
