Hi have been awarded maternity allowance, and have got my first payment today into bank account, but how often is it paid? can it be paid weekly? (sure i would have opted for this) Can't remember.

TIA Smile

Weekly or Four weekly - and fourweekly is very different from monthly and ends up in stress 4day post CS mumms running round town trying to work out why she is £200 overdrawn and has no money or income for the next four weeks!

Didn't realise the impact of 4weekly versus same day each month payments on cash flow

Aah thanks, thought it would be weekly/ 4 weekly. I am pretty sure i would have gone for weekly.

Thanks for replies Smile

pucca - i requested mine 4 weekly, stupidly thinking that if i returned my paperwork promptly that tehy would pay promptly. How stupid was I. I received one payment after stopping work for 4 weeks, which was the amount of one weeks entitlement, and the next payment will come 4 weeks after that was received, so i will be receiving money/back payments, when i return to work. It has buggered me up financially big time. I have no idea how i will survive on £108 for 8 weeks. bloody useless they are.
