    So i just got a letter in from my work which has recently been taken over saying I am not entitled to SMP from them as my earnings are not enough! They have said to take the letter to local job centre to claim anybody know how much I am going to recieve from them ?? Panicking a little :( x

    You will get MA, which is £120something or 90% of your earnings whichever is lower. :)
    I will only get MA too :( X

    I'm having to apply for Maternity Allowance too, just because I haven't worked at my work for long enough (by 2 weeks!)
    You can just walk into job centre and get the form, take it home, fill it in then send it off with the freepost envelope. Sent mine off today :)
