Hi ladies, I would appreciate some advice please. I am pregnant with my second child and currently unemployed, I have however rang the maternity benefit section and I have all the necessary requirements to receive the benefit as long as I get one stamp after 24 weeks pregnant, problem is im struggling to find work, would I be able to get hired by a self employed relative, I do his books annually but im not sure if him hiring me for a few days would be enough for me to get the benefit? would anyone be able to advise? thanks very much.

Yes, I believe as long as you get one days work after 24 weeks, for which you get paid at least €40 and therefore get the correct PRSI stamp you will qualify.
