In the UK, Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) is paid for up to 39 weeks. For the first six weeks, you receive 90% of your average weekly earnings before tax. For the next 33 weeks, you get either £172.48 per week or 90% of your average weekly earnings, whichever is lower. To qualify, you must earn at least £123 per week on average, give proper notice to your employer, and meet other eligibility criteria. Your employer may offer additional maternity pay on top of SMP, which can vary depending on their policies. It's advisable to consult with your employer's HR department for specific details.
