So I'm due on the 20th of December and have just been told I can take all my holiday pay (4 weeks) and then be entitled to 12 months of unpaid maternity leave.
My belly is becoming enormous and I'm working 40 hours a week as a manager at Maccas. It's becoming exhausting.
I went into centrelink today to find out what benefits I would be able to receive and was told after 20 minutes of waiting in line that I am best of phoning, so i used the phone service there. After 10 minutes on hold I was told online would be the best way to go. I think I was too stressed out to make sense of what it said.
I was wondering if anybody reading this could help me out. I was hoping to find out the earliest I could take off work, and what payments I'd be entitled to. I am partnered, but he only works as a casual at Coles.
Thanks for any help!
