    If you get any of the reuirements for the grant now, maternity allowance wont affect your claim.

    Thanks for reminding me though, i still haven't applied for my mat all yet :wall: :wall: i know i can't get that cause of not working but i think i have to apply for incapacity benefit or something :think: :doh:
