i was speaking to a friend of mine and she said that you need to apply for maternity benifit at least 14 weeks before you plan on leaving.
mine is 15 weeks away??
Sorry that's no help! Do you need a hand with your dates or with the forms?
Apply for it?
It is 6 weeks actually. You can download the form from here
You should not apply any sooner that 16 weeks before your due date, and no later than 6 weeks.
You need to get work and your doctor to sign your forms. I filled mine in about 8 weeks before due date then spent over a week getting work to fill in their section and then remembering to bring it to the GP's office.
I hope this helps
does gp or work fill out first???
im so clueless is there anything else i have to apply 4?????
have you notified your employers about your maternity leave? you need to notifiy them formally as well as applying for maternity benefit.

oohh good question.
I have the form i got it from HR.
I have GP appointment on Tuesday and wondering should I bring it in to her then to fill out?
Is that too soon. Had planned on sending it off before Xmas.
