A Ministerial Statement from the Department of Work and Pensions has announced the government’s intention to increase rates of statutory maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental pay, maternity allowance and sick pay from 9 April 2018. The following rates will apply:

  • statutory maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental pay, maternity allowance: £145.18 per week;
