How much maternity pay will I receive?

If you’re eligible for maternity pay, we’ll pay you as follows:

  • 90% of your average weekly earnings for the first six weeks; and
  • £184.03 or 90% of your average weekly earnings (whichever is lower) for the following 33 weeks.

Tax and National Insurance will be deducted as normal.

 These figures are correct for the 2024/25 tax year.

"When I left my permanent job to move to supply teaching, I was nervous about the financial implications for my family. When I found out I was expecting my baby, I thought the worst… but I’m so thankful that Key provides a service which backs the rights of parents to take the time off to take care of their newborn. Fantastic employment service with great customer care."
