Matb1 form and maternity pay! Sorry a bit confusing!
Hi all i just need a bit of advice, I was just wondering when i can ask for my matb1 form as i have 2 part-time jobs and as i do not quite earn ??90 a week from either but well over that together so i will have to apply for maternity allowance instead of SMP and i know i can't do this until i am 26 weeks pregnant but does anyone know if i have to give the matb1 form to my employers first? When i had my daughter i worked full time so it wasn't a problem but now i am pregnant again i am a bit concerned that i will not get all the maternity pay that i am entitled to because i do pay tax for one of my jobs but they deduct tax according to what i have earnt from both jobs not just one so i am also worried that they will pay me smp coz i pay tax through them and then then i will loose what i should get from my other job. I have worked out that i should get ??400 aprox a month if its based on both jobs but if one of my jobs wants to pay me SMP for what i earn with them and not the other job then i will get alot less than that. I am almost certain that i have to earn ??90 a week from both jobs in order to gert SMP from both so as i don't i should be able to apply for maternity allowance based on everything i earn right? I am so sorry if this is confusing i think its pregnancy hormones making me panic!!!! I did so much research on this before i fell pregnant and i was convinced that i would apply of Maternity allowance and that would it but i have heard a few people saying that it isn't very to do this and get what you are entitled to so now i am worried! so sorry again xxx
