I'm planning to have a second baby ASAP smile
I'm on a temporary fixed term contract (with the view to extend on a rolling basis, but no significant chance of permanent contract as the organisation isn't able to take on permanent staff for the foreseeable future).

I've tried the direct gov website but can't get a solid answer as to whether I'll get SMP or maternity allowance or nothing at all.

Please please please point me in the right direction for an answer confused

Thank you lovely people!

Clear eligibility requirements for SMP here and if you don't meet those requirements, eligibility for Maternity Allowance here

Whether your employment is described as fixed term or permanent makes no difference to anything.
