    Hi,
    I got both, I dont see why you cant :think: because Sure Start is a one off payment and MA is based on the amount of weeks you have worked in a set preiod of time...

    It depends on your circumstances, getting one doesn't automatically mean you get the other one, but many people do.
    For example, my OH earns too much for us to get enough CTC for the grant, but I may have to get MA cos I don't earn much with my employer. (and they have messed up my SMP claim big time so I may have no choice)
