    Iv applied for income support, they sent me the statement which i have signed and sent back. they are now asking for proof of my due date.

    do you think it will be ok to take my maternity notes to the job centre so they can copy it and fax it off? would be much quicker than posting it. been 3 weeks without money now and its getting hard.

    I thought the only thing they would accept is matb1, did you get it from midwife at 25 weeks ish? You can prob get another copy x

    I'm not sure taking anything to jobcentre will be quicker, it will have to get passed through diff departments, get Matb1 send by recorded, couple of quid but it will get where it needs to be quick, and I would call and make sure there is nothing else to do / send off after that x

    A matb1 is just a form your midwife fills in to say you're prgenant with a due date. My Doctors surgery then had to stamp it.

    Get a MAT b1 form then phone the income support/jobcentre plus number (on some of your letters etc) tell them you have it and they can arrange for you to have a appointment to take it in. They can then log it on the computer there and then and then fax it through to the right dept. Thats what I did with my sick cets for ESA. xxxx

    I got a matb1 off my midwife (who offered it to me), I sent it off to income support and got it back in the post, I think it's definitely the matb1 that they need, hope you get it sorted soon hun xxx
