Am I eligible for maternity pay?
If you’re taking time off to have a baby, please let us know. We’ll quickly confirm whether or not we’re able to pay you maternity pay. The rules are set by the government. Broadly speaking, you must:
- earn at least £118 on average per week before tax;
- give us at least 28 days’ notice before the date on which you want to stop working;
- send us the MATB1 certificate that your doctor or midwife will give you; and
- have worked for Key Portfolio continuously for at least 26 weeks up to the ‘qualifying week’, which is the 15th week before your due date.
If we’re not able to pay you maternity pay directly, we can still assist you with claiming through your local benefits office. Get in touch as soon as possible and we’ll let you know how we can help.
