Can I get Statutory Paternity Pay?

To get Statutory Paternity Pay, you must have been working for the same employer without a break for at least 26 weeks by the 15th week before the baby is due. You must also carry on working for that employer without a break up to the date the child is born or placed with you for adoption.

You must be earning an average of at least £113 a week (before tax).

If your partner doesn't use up all their statutory maternity or adoption leave, and goes back to work, you may be able to take the remainder of their leave to look after your child. You would be paid the remainder of the statutory pay or maternity allowance that they would have been entitled to.
