Maternity/company benefit


Mothers who are in paid employment and are paying statutory health insurance contributions will be entitled to a maternity benefit to offset the loss of income during the period they are unable to work.

If you pay voluntary insurance contributions and are in low-paid employment, you will receive the fixed amount specified under law as your maternity benefit.

Self-employed persons will also be entitled to a benefit to offset their loss of income due to maternity.
