Sure Start Maternity Grant - Do I need a Bank Account?

Until the past few years, I didn't have any ID so never bothered opening a bank account, I did have a very good job for over five years,, Where the money was just being paid straight into my parent's spare bank account, and I have the card to it. Still, do. Any money that needs a bank account, I just get it put straight into there. Never been a problem.

When I apply for the Sure Start Maternity Grant, Would they be able to do the same? If my monthly wages were going into this account, Surely there won't be a problem, right?

Has anyone does this? Got the grant, But don't have a bank account so got it put into the one they do use? I'm asking on Mumsnet to hear people's actual experiences instead of contacting them. Obviously, I will still contact them.

I hope this all makes sense, Thank you everyone :3

I've never had a sure start grant but I was on income support and had problems with my bank account and had to use my mum's account. I got a budgeting loan paid into her account so I don't think it would be a problem getting your grant paid in to another account.
