Being a stay at home parent has advantages, but it can be tough financially. Fortunately, there is some financial support available that can ease the pressure and help to cover bills, food and other essential costs. Make sure you understand what benefits you’re entitled to and how to apply.
Maternity & paternity pay
If you’ve been in work, you should be entitled to statutory maternity pay or maternity allowance depending on your circumstances.
Statutory maternity leave & pay
You are entitled to take 52 weeks leave, but statutory pay only covers 39 weeks. The first six weeks should be at 90% of your average weekly earnings, and the following 33 weeks will be £148.68 per week or 90% of your earnings (whichever is lower).
