I am a newbie here and a newbie to the whole world of babies. My partner and I are trying for a baby and I just have a few questions about leave.
I am entitled to three months paid maternity leave where I am employed. So I am planning on taking that and using up all the annual leave I have too so I should be taking about 4.5 months off in total and then return to work part time.
Whilst receiving my work maternity leave pay could I get the PPL at the same time or can I only get that once my work one runs out? I have been told a few different things but just wanted some clarification. I am deciding whether the PPL or baby bonus would be a better option.
Sorry if I sound daft. Thanks
