The Government has announced that, with effect from 7th April 2024, the rate of a week’s pay for the purpose of calculating family leave in the UK will rise to £183.04 per week. This rate increase impacts statutory maternity pay, shared parental leave pay, adoption pay, paternity pay and parental bereavement pay.

£183.04 is the maximum amount payable per week under the statutory regimes. Employees receive their actual pay each week if this is lower.
