Maternity allowance

Maternity allowance is paid by the statutory health insurances during the maternity protection periods to expectant mothers who are members of the statutory health insurance and are entitled to the payment of sickness benefits. In addition, other requirements must be met, for example the pregnant woman must be or have been employed. If the woman is employed, the health insurance company pays a maximum of € 13 per calendar day.

The employer is obliged to pay the difference to the average net wage as an allowance for maternity benefit. The details can be found in the Maternity Protection Act (Act for the Protection of Working Mothers).

For female employees who are not members of a statutory health insurance fund, including women with private health insurance and those with family insurance in statutory health insurance, they receive maternity benefit not exceeding a total of € 210.
