It depends what you actually earn on average during your qualifying weeks (ie. approx 8 weeks prior to 24th week pg) . In theory yes but if you are receiving SMP or are on OML during that time, your 90% for 6 weeks may mean you will get only the basic SMP level for the first 6 weeks as well as the next 33. If you company offers a discretionary scheme over and above SMP then you would need to check eligibility with HR.

Yes. As long as you go back I think. I know someone who came back in February and went off in July and got her full maternity package.
