Hmm getting nervous because the rule is that the MatB1 needs to be in before the end of the 15th week before the baby is due. However I would be 25 weeks exactly on 6th March. I had exams all of that week and am in a completely different city, so I booked the appointment for the following week 12th March. However I still don't have my MatB1, so am I leaving it too late? I wonder what happens if I don't get it in by the deadline, surely they still have to let me have paid maternity leave?
Really? That early? Im a sahm and always have been (not through choice, was young when had ds and git my qualifications after I had him, had 3 interviews and discoveredI was pg with dd, and im now pg with number 3) and ive always got my matb1 at 29 weeks, that seems to be the standard as far as I wss aware
My work documents stated that I had to hand mine in before I was 25 weeks. So I contacted my midwife and she had it waiting at reception for me to collect. Picked it up last week, next appointment 11th feb
We had go give written notice, then the Matb1 at least 4 weeks before we wanted smp to start. Obviously it depends on when these dates fall but check your work policy but also the law (there is a good gov site on it all) to see what you need to do
I had similar issues about the date of my midwife appointment being later than when I needed to hand the Mat1B form into work. I rang her, explained that I needed the form earlier than the appointment, and she sorted the form out for me and left it at my GP reception for me to collect.
I completely forgot about my matB1 this time round and didn't end up handing it in to work til 28 weeks - there was no problem with this. I just rang my midwife and asked for one, she said to pop up to the maternity unit and she would fill one in for me.
Yes mine is the same. Need it in before the 15th week of due date. That defines the months the mat pay is calculated on. My workplace seems pretty strict on that according to the pregnancy workshop I attended last month
