I rang the SWO last week to see was I entitled to MB which I am, although its the minimum, it was actually someone rang me back and left a voice message but he never mentioned sending out forms nor have i recieved any, I assume you do have to fill out a form?

Yes MrsD....if you google maternity benefit form you will get it up. Has to be filled in & sent to section of the dept of SW - I think the latest it can be sent is 6 wks before ur due date.

Hi there you have to fill out a form. I have attached the link below - you can just print this form off and fill it out. You cant send it in until 16 weeks before your due but you must send it before 6 weeks of the date you intend to start your leave. There are parts for your doctor and you employer to fill out.
