Statutory Paternity Pay
When your wife, partner or civil partner gives birth or adopts a child, you may be entitled to Statutory Paternity Pay.
SPP is paid for a maximum of 2 weeks to employees who satisfy the qualifying conditions.
The weekly rate is £172.48 (April 2023) or 90% of the employee's average weekly earnings (AWE), whichever is lower.
If you an issue with or a query about a payment, you should contact the HMRC statutory payment dispute team. Details of how to do so can be accessed at the link below.
