How do you claim maternity benefits?

How do you claim maternity benefits?

Register at the Labour Office or register and claim online.  If you are too ill to go to the Labour Office, a friend or family member can make the application but must take all the documents with them.

Documents you need to make the claim:

·   ID book

·   Copies of your last six pay slips

·   Form UI-2.8 for banking details

·   UI-19 – information supplied by your employer

·   A service certificate from the employer

·   Proof of banking details

·   A statement of amount paid to you during maternity leave

·   Form UI-2.7

·   Form UI-2.3 (application form)

·   Medical certificate from a doctor or birth certificate of the baby

·   Form UI-4 (follow up form)

·   A fully completed registration form

When you register for maternity benefits you will get FORM UF92.  This form must be filled in by a doctor.  You must then take the form back to the Labour Office.
