Whether or not an employee who suffers a miscarriage is eligible for statutory maternity pay (SMP) depends on at what stage of the pregnancy the miscarriage occurs and whether or not she meets the normal elibility requirements.
The date of the employee's expected week of childbirth on the Mat B1 form should be used to calculate in which week of pregnancy she was when her miscarriage occurred. An employee who suffers a miscarriage before the end of the 24th week of pregnancy will not be eligible to receive SMP. However, if an employee has a miscarriage, or stillbirth, after 24 weeks of pregnancy, SMP will be payable, provided that the employee meets the other qualifying requirements. The employee must have been continuously employed for 26 weeks prior to the
qualifying week, which is the 15th week before the expected week of
childbirth (EWC), and her average weekly earnings over the period of eight
weeks ending with the qualifying week must not be less than the lower earnings
limit for national insurance purposes.
