Maternity leave payment calculator
With our maternity leave payment calculator you can quickly and easily calculate your entitlement
Maternity leave payment is the net wage replacement that mothers receive during the protection periods before and after the birth. For salaried employees, it consists of the current maternity leave payment from the health insurance fund (max. €13 per day) and the maternity leave contribution from the employer. In our maternity leave payment calculator, you can quickly and easily calculate the maternity leave contribution from your employer.
This is how our maternity leave payment calculator works
Maternity leave replaces an average pre-maternity net pay. In the first step, therefore, you enter the start of maternity leave into the calculator.
Based on this, the three-month period before the start of maternity leave is automatically determined. The net remuneration for the respective months is to be entered there.
By clicking on “Calculate maternity leave now”, the maternity leave contribution from the employer is determined by first calculating the sum of the net pay entered, which is then divided by a flat rate of 90 working days to obtain an average calendar net pay.
The €13 health insurance contribution is deducted from this amount, leaving the employer’s contribution, which the employer pays to the mother for each day of maternity leave. As a rule, payment is made in the same way as for current pay.
Good to know:
The employer is not left to bear the costs, but is reimbursed in full by the health insurance fund via the U2 maternity benefit contribution. The maternity leave payment is thus ultimately borne by the community of insured persons.
