Does anyone know if your employers contributions to your pension are a statutory thing they have to make during maternity leave or if it depends on your contract?

If they are supposed to pay should it be based on your usual salary or on maternity pay?

I can't find a clear answer online and need a good source to discuss with hr at work.

thanks in advance.

Employer pension contributions need to be paid as if you were still at work (ie on your pre maternity salary) your contributions are paid based based on your MP.

If your pension contributions are deducted via salary sacrifice your employer has to pay your contributions as well as their own if you are only on SMP.
