SMP from 2 jobs - can anyone help?

I'm due to go on maternity leave later this year. I have two employers, and I qualify for SMP from both. Can I apply to both employers?

Everything I've read seems to say yes, but it seems bizarre that I then effectively get a double payment.

Can anyone clarify?

Yes, you can, if you work enough hours and qualify for both smile.

Is that for the whole 39 weeks?!

I'm interested in this as currently trying to conceive and now have two jobs which I'd qualify for. What I can't work out is whether I'd lose all smp if I went back to one job and not the other. I work at home for one job though employed.

I think you're entitled to take a different amount of leave for each job, although don't quote me on that!

If that's the case that would be bloody brilliant. I could actually take a full year off! Yippee!
