You don't pay tax on your maternity benefit so I assume that you are accumulating tax credits for the time you on maternity benefit so you can claim a refund at the end as your tax credits are divided equally over 52 weeks. That would of course be based on the assumption that you paid tax on wages at some stage in the year.
