I hope someone can help me. So, I’m due to go maternity leave in the middle of December. I have been told I am entitled to universal credit and also the sure start maternity grant.

I can apply for the grant 11 weeks prior to the due date but need universal credit to qualify. Am I able to claim for universal credit now or do I have to wait until I’m on leave???

So confused!!!
