Just wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of where I can find out information about both the above.
I am employed part-time for a company and not sure how I go about finding out what maternity payments I am entitled to. It's only a small company and I am the first "maternity leave employee"! So they are not 100% sure how it works.
Also, how do you/what can you claim tax relief on for medical expenses?
Any guidance would be much appreciated - have looked up the Gov site and as suspected it's like a mine-field trying to find what you are looking for.
Tks in advance.
Excellent info re everything

If you've any questions just give them a ring...they are usually quite good at answering queries.
To reclaim your medical expenses you need to submit a form Med1. Its all explained here
Its all explained here. AFAIK there is no difference for part-time workers regarding rates.
Thanks a mil one year married! Just looked that up and its a great help! They don't make it easy for you do they?! It's so expensive - hopefully, I'll get something decent back. Thanks again!
Sorry for this now but am a bit slow when it comes to tax etc.... Am I right in saying that if your employer does not offer paid materity leave that when you return to work you get tax back?
you will need to fill the mb10 form, if your emploer cant give it to you , the local social welfare dept , will give you one.
