Maternity leave and 30 hours eligibility

I'm now on statutory maternity pay and just reconfirmed my eligibility for 30 hours childcare today. It asked if I earn £120/week before tax, which I do, but as my pension and childcare vouchers are paid through salary sacrifice, my taxable "pay" ends up being less. Do you think it matters?

Also, does anyone know what happens during the last 3 months of maternity leave (unpaid). When I next reconfirm in May, I would be looking at one month on stat mat pay (June), then two months unpaid (July and August). Would I still be eligible or do you have to be earning for the whole three months?
