Can anyone tell me if you get paid from your job if on maternity leave, or do you just get maternity benefit or both.
Ive a permanent job in the health service. Mortgage comes out of my account and wondering if I will have enough to meet it when on maternity leave.
It depends on your employeer, you will need to ask someone in your HR department.
Mine don't pay me so I'm on the state benefit of 280 a week.
hi i work in the HSE too. They paid you your full salary for the 26 wks. If you are Class A Prsi, you need to reimbuse the HSE the amount of your Maternity benefit cheque. I am just going to get my cheque paid directly to our finance dept. There is a seperate form to fill out for this available on SW website. You need to fill out your HSE maternity leave application at least 4 wks before you go on ML
Thats a relief to know. Think Im a class a pension but Im going to check tomorrow. Thank you both for the info.
You are welcome, enjoy your pregnancy I am counting down the weeks til ML now!!
