    If a lone parent is in receipt of Maternity Allowance from the DWP, but still receives her WTC (was working prior to MA), can she still receive the standard & the additional earnings disregards? 😯


    Standard disregard: No.

    These only apply to earnings – she (presumably) has no earnings (MA unlike SMP is not earnings for HB).

    AED: Possibly.

    If she continues to receive 30 hour credit as part of her WTC then she can get the AED – this can be disregarded from her WTC if no earnings.
