Q3.8 I Have Heard You Can Request That The Payments Are Given Evenly Instead Of Ending Up The Last Few Months With Very Little Income. How Does This Work?

A3.8 Maternity Pay, by prior agreement with your employer, may be paid in a different way such as equal weekly values spread over the maternity leave period of up to 52 weeks.  However, HMRC regulations state employees must receive at least 90% of their salary for the first 6 weeks of their maternity leave; therefore, equal payments cannot be applied to this period. 

If you wish to apply for equal payments of your Occupational Maternity Pay, you can do so via section 18 of the Maternity Leave Application Form. This option, if selected, must be made prior to the commencement of your maternity leave and this cannot be changed afterwards.
