question for uk dads please to qualify for paternity pay I have to earn 118 pw. I earn more then that but in 2 differnt jobs 2 different companys combined it's more. do you still qualify for it or does it have to be one job? online doesn't say much and the online chat isnt open till monday. thanks
i dont have much info on this other than that you have to had worked for employer for atleast 26 weeks continuously
its really not that much:
The rate of Statutory Paternity Pay and Statutory Shared Parental Pay is the lowest of:
£148.68 per week
90% of your average weekly earnings
It’s paid by your employer who will deduct tax and National Insurance contributions before paying it to you.
Might be worth giving Inland Revenue (HMCRS) a call - they have a pretty good helpline and they will give you money that you are entitled to.
