Can I get paid my Maternity Benefit if I go to another country?

You will not be paid Maternity Benefit for any period you spend outside the EU. 

If you are an EU citizen, you can get Maternity Benefit for any period of your maternity leave spent in an EU country.

If you are not an EU citizen, you will only get Maternity Benefit for any period you spend in the Republic of Ireland.

If you intend to leave the State for any period of your paid Maternity Benefit, you must inform Maternity Benefit Section.
