How much does Statutory Shared Parental Pay (SSPP) give me?

Statutory Shared Parental Pay (SSPP) is paid at the rate of £140.98 a week or 90% of your average weekly earnings, whichever is lower.

This is the same as Statutory Maternity Pay (SMP) except that during the first 6 weeks SMP is paid at 90% of whatever you earn (with no maximum).

SPL and SSPP must be taken between the baby’s birth and first birthday (or within one year of adoption).
