Parental leave eligibility calculator

Find out:  

  • if you can get maternity, paternity or shared parental leave 

  • how much pay you can get if you take leave 

Before you start  

You will need to know:  

  • your employment status (for example employed or worker) 

  • the date you started your current job 

  • the date you finished work (if you have finished) 

  • how much you earn 

You will need the same information about your partner if you plan to share the care of the child with them. 

Use this calculator once for each job you have. 

For further information on the Parental leave eligibility calculator can be found on GOV.UK's website.
