Hi, I would need some advice. I am 7 months pregnant and I am extremely nervous about the future financials. At work I will not receive any maternity pay, so I will have to survive on SMP which is £400 something after tax per month. Unfortunately, I do not qualify for any other benefits (possibly only Child Benefit) as apparently my pay is too high (ha ha ha) for the limits of these benefits. However, I will not get any maternity poay from my company moving forward. I just do not understand this. Why is it that if they think you earn too much but you do not get anything from your company, you still are only entitled to £400 something per month? My other does not earn enough either. How am I supposed to be surviving with a baby?
