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.

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.
