Hi Peeps! Been having murder with employers re my maternity allowance. I was misinformed by some silly cow in my employers human resources dept that I would qualify for SMP. It came as quite of a shock to find out that at 36 weeks pg, payroll had informed me that they (HUMAN RESOURCES) had made a mistake and that I could only qualify for MA. Needless to say that I was and still am very annoyed esp as all I got was as plain sorry and tellingme at such a late stage in my pregnancy. Anyways I am just enquiring, as I have now received all the relevant data from my employers as to where I am to send my MA1 form to apply for Maternity Allowance to? I had lost the envelope within the MA claimpack and just wondered if anyone knew whether I am to send the form to the Dept of Works and Pensions?
