Statutory Payments Rates
The weekly rate of statutory maternity pay, statutory paternity pay, statutory adoption pay and statutory shared parental pay would normally increase every year. This time due to a fall in the consumer prices index, the Government has announced there will be no annual increase for 2016/17. Similarly, there will be no change to Statutory sick pay. The rates remain at Statutory Maternity Pay, Adoption Pay, Shared Parental Pay and Paternity Pay £139.58pr week. Statutory Sick Pay will remain at £88.45pr week. Full details of all proposed benefit and pension rates for 2016-17 can be found on GOV.UK.
