Does anyone have any idea how long it's taking to process claims for MA at the moment? I remember it being super speedy with dd, but seems to be taking much longer this time.

I applied in July and had a letter 3 weeks later to say they had accepted my application for MA and that I was entitled to it. I've recently started my mat leave so have just sent the letter off to say I am ready to start claiming it. So it has all been processed pretty quickly. x

Sorry to add a question - when you send off your application and they get back to you, do you not start getting paid right away? And how long is that wait? Just I leave work really soon and still haven't sent my forms off confused
