Have just gone through entitledto.com to work out how much we might be entitled to when my wife goes back to work, which appears to be exactly what we get now!!
Does it always work on what you earned in the previous year? As my wife worked for the whole of the previous year, meaning we are obviously entitled to less, but she's not working at all at the moment, so this is when we need the money.
Then when she goes to work and earns little (13 hrs p/w), the following year, when my daughter gets cheaper nursery costs, they will give us more. Madness!!
