How do you work out my payment?

For claims beginning on or after 6 January 2014
In the case of a claim for Maternity Benefit in respect of a period of maternity leave which begins on or after 6 January 2014, the standard rate payable will be €230.00   per week.

Employees and self-employed

In all cases, we compare the rate of Maternity Benefit to the rate of Illness Benefit that you would get if you were absent from work through illness. We will check this for you and you will get the higher of the two automatically (see section 6 for further details).
