What documents will I need to claim a Sure Start Maternity Grant?
You will need to provide evidence that you have received the advice of a health professional on the health and welfare needs of your baby. There is a certificate for this on the back of the claim form that you will need to get signed by a healthcare professional, for example:
• A community or hospital midwife
• A health visitor
• Your doctor.
When will my Sure Start Maternity Grant claim begin?
You can claim from the eleventh week before the baby is due and up to three months after the baby is born. If you are adopting a child the claim must be made within three months of the date of the adoption.
