I think I'm going to be elligible to claim Maternity Allowance. I work about 3 or 4 hours most weeks, and a day a week most school hols.
I just want to know how it works when I come to claim it. I am employed in both my jobs and they're PAYE type jobs although I don't earn enough to pay tax. The more regular job I get paid monthly.
So... when I get the form, will I have to work out how much I have been paid, weekly (it's based on what you earn over 13 weeks) or do they work it out for me? Or what? And I'll need to pick the weeks where I've earned most over the period, won't I?
Oh God I think this is going to get complicated.
Right I need to go to bed now but will check back tomorrow. TIA
But I don't work regular hours so some weeks I'll have earned £150 and another week only £30 or nothing at all, so I'll need to specify weeks to get the most amount of MA. It says to send your monthly pay slips and they will work out how much I've earned per week, but I don't want them to take an average!!
Never mind. I'll wait til a bit nearer the time and work out the best weeks and contact them and see if I can send other evidence like my claim forms.
