Post subject: so annoyed with myself!!!
So i finally got round to filling out the form for child benifits and sent it off last week. Then the benifit office phoned me today to double check Freya's date of birth. I had only put her date of birth as 03/08/07, making her a year old!!!!!
This would not of been so bad if it wernt for the fact that they now have to send me out an envelope so i can re-send her birth certificate again!!!
Looks like I will be struggling with money for a little longer Sad

Oh hun, it must be the hormones still, lol. not much you can do about it either there so fussy aint they! at least when you do get it you will get a lump sum, if you need money before and are struggling have you thought about maybe getting a crisis loan? that way when yu do get the money you can pay it straight back and no interest.

mIne was sorted within a week, and my payments were also backdated! Have you applied for tax credits too? I sent my form in may, and hadnt heard anything, so i phoned them yesterday and there had been an error on my form, but they were waiting for ME to contact THEM! I nearly laughed out loud, as if i would know that!! Anyway, they said that they would also backdate any awards to the day they received the form, but I wont get much!

You should tell them the mistake you made. I hada similar poblem recently. Just tell them that you are struggling with money and they will give you emergency funds. Plus your money should be backdated xx

Thanks lillamb. Wow that was a lot of money, hopefully i will have a nice surpise like that also Very Happy
A quick question, im on maternity leave untill Freya is 3 months old, after that i am not returning to my job so will then go onto income suport, which i know entitles me to the maternity grant. But i also know that i only have untill freya is 3 months to claim it. Do i claim it now and tell them i will be going on to income suport or do i just miss out?
