I had ma paperwork back today. And it is official..... I start maternity leave on the 4th of March for a year!!!! I can't wait to stop working!!! Then i will have only uni to concentrate on :)
When are you planning to start your maternity ladies?
Oh I wish I could take a year off. That's so nice for you. I plan to work until I can't work anymore but I have a feeling I'll be part time for most if not all of May. I will go back to work when my older two are done with summer vacation the being of September.
Natfox are u not able to get income support? Am part time at work too and gettin materity allowance for 26 weeks but am taken 52 weeks off work so will b able to apply for income support whn materity pay is up
I plan on working for as long as I can, I'd.like to accumulate enuff time so.that I can get paid for at least 3 months out! But good for you!!!! I really wish I could stay out for that long but with pay lol
Over here we get a centerlink payment. Atm I'm getting around 350 Aussie dollars a fortnight and I've been getting that since my little one was born (he's now 17 months) and we also get an extra 300 a fortnight for the first six months after bub is born. They call it the baby bonus. Use to be a lump sum of 5000 but heaps of girls were getting pregnant just for rhe money. The amount you get is dependent on how much your partner is working. And I know if your a single mum you get A LOT more. It's still a struggle with the price of rent ect but I.love that I don't HAVE to go back to work. Mind you before i fell pregnant again I was doing some casual work for my own sanity. Lol :)
