Hi i am hoping someone can please help and point me in right direction. My maternity pay from work finishes on june 6th which is a huge worry as me andmy partner are already struggling with the mortgage.


Ive looked into going back to work, but tbh by the time i have paid out for childcare then 4 buses a day its not going to be worth it.


My partner earns £26k a year but mortgage is 700 month, then theres 180 month to his ex kids so theres a huge chunk ofmoney gone before you even think of other bills.


anyone please got any ideas as to what i may get should i not return from work? would i be btter trying to get income support or jsa?

Are you claiming all the benefits you can? there is a child care element you can claim if you are going back to work.


You can use this calculator to work it out, I know it sounds daft but sometimes it is better to just go back part time and do the minimum 16 hours, just have a mess about with your figures and work out the best scenario for your circumstances
