If you are away from work on maternity leave, your membership and benefits under the DB Section will continue for the duration of your maternity leave in line with the Company’s Maternity Policy.
Your membership, Pensionable Service and benefits will continue on the same basis which would have applied to you had you been working as you were immediately before your maternity leave.
While you are entitled to maternity pay (from the Company or under statute), your benefits will continue to build up based on the full-time salary you would have received had you not been on maternity leave. If you do not return to work, your Pensionable Service will generally stop 18 weeks after the latter of the date your maternity leave or statutory maternity pay ceases.
For further information please contact your local HR Team or the Administration Team.
