How much is Statutory Paternity Pay?

You can claim ordinary SPP in blocks of a week or 2 weeks – up to a maximum of 2 weeks. You will be paid either a flat rate (£138.18 per week from 6 April 2014) or 90% of your average weekly earnings if this is less.

Your average weekly earnings are calculated using your gross pay, which includes the pay that forms part of your NI contributions.
