Hi I'm currently filling out the maternity Benefit form and came to a section asking ''How many children do you wish to claim for? When claiming for the maternity Benefit am I also claiming something for DS???

Hi Oat, Yes, you can also claim for any other children you have who are dependent on you. So if you have another child you can include them on your application and you may get a small increase (this depends on what your husband is earning) the increase is only something like €14. Hope that helps!
