Hi just hoping to have a comment of anyone who can help me. I unfortunately have suffered very Badly with lower back problems and sciatica since about 4 months pregnant. The doctor issued me a sick note at 5 months pregnant I am now 7 months pregnant and have been unable to return to work in this time as my job is to physical to return to. I really don't think I am entitled to my full 90% of earnings for SMp. I'm not even sure if I'm entitled to anything as I have been of work for a long period of time. Can anyone help me find some answers ? Thank you

You are still employed and so still considered to be working. Maternity pay is calculated based on your gross earnings over a period of 8 weeks up to your last payday before the end of your qualifying week (15th week).

I suggest contacting your HR if you have any concerns.
