Could anyone help with this benefits question ?


I just wondered if anyone had an answer to my question,

I have never claimed anything before and have worked since I was 16 (now 28). I'm currently on maternity leave and my husband and I have decided that the best option for us would for me to take a career break from my job for the next 2yrs to look after our baby.

I am happy with this decison but obviously money will be tight, does anyone know if I would be entitled to JSA or any other benefit (other than child tax credits as I have already spoke to them but they cant help at the min as I am still recieving an income through SMP, but they will revaluate nearer the time.

Have no experience with benefits so hope soeone can help

many thanks
