Hey mums.
I sent off for my sure start maternity grant on Monday,I realise it's not even been a week yet but I've not heard anything not even the text the send.

I just wanted to know how long yours took from sending it to hearing back wether that be a text or letter.

Thank you!smile

Mine took a few weeks.

I received the letter about 2 weeks after I sent off, I didn't receive the actual money until baby was 3 months old x

What are the requirements to get this grant?

Of course it’s fair, the money goes to those who need it the most.

I work full time and have no extra money for anything

It isn’t ‘extra money’, it’s a benefit for those that need it the most.

If you were that poor you WOULD be entitled to it, if you aren't entitled to it then you clearly earn enough money that you don't need the grant
