Re: Registered c permit but giving birth in Uk to return to work after maternity leav

My question is: How can I register my child from England so that my maternity leave pay can start?

Or does the employer pay it and claim it from the insurers themselves?

Or do I just not bother and do it when I come back?
My experience is that the pregnant employee's manager knew that his/ her employee was expecting and also knew approximately when the baby was due for various reasons, including how to cover for the new mother during the maternity leave. The expectant employee usually disappeared a few days before the baby was born and then she or the husband notified the HR department of the details with, of course, a photo of the baby which was posted on the HR department's wall. Based on the report of the birth, the employer started the maternity leave.

The OP's company may also have a more formal policy than this. Possibly the OP should check with her HR department.

Added:
Many companies have a deductible on their short-term disability insurance (Krankentaggeld), meaning that the company must pay 30 to 120 days or more of an employee's salary before the insurance starts. Also, my experience is that the company continues to pay the employee's salary and then is reimbursed by the insurance to the extent that the deductible has been exhausted. This may be different in some companies.

Re: Registered c permit but giving birth in Uk to return to work after maternity leav

Hi.

So im a ex UK citizen too and i feel the OP pain, two sides i guess to this story and to be frank I alao had the same problem but with me it was a suspicious lump im my breast, i wanted also to be in the UK again for personal reasons to address this and of course was not allowed NHS treatment ( to be honest this would have been impossable anyway for me due to the waiting list for MRI scans ) BUT they did offer me referral to private care BUPA ect yes you you have to pay but if it is a comfort to be in your own country and native speaking doctors ect it is definitely worth it and a bonus is the hospitals are usually lovely, to the OP consider your options and ive heard some even have payment plans so you can pay monthly,

Wish you all the best with the new arrival

Re: Registered c permit but giving birth in Uk to return to work after maternity leav

You and your employer should establish a last working date before your due date, at that time your maternity benefits will kick in. Usually your employer pays you and they get refunded by the insurance.

Once you have the baby you'll need to notify your employer with a copy of the birth certificate to claim the child benefit, but this has no bearing on your maternity leave and the process to get that money. Most people inform their boss one way or another to inform that the baby has been born, and they in turn can inform HR - but your HR department will want to know that baby has arrived safely.

When you come back from the UK you'll need to take all of your paperwork (copies of permits, birth certificate etc) to register the birth. Usually the hospital here will do that, but as you're not giving birth here you will need to do it on your own.

Good luck

Re: Registered c permit but giving birth in Uk to return to work after maternity leav

Thank you, (last 3 posts) I've since confirmed with socialsversicherung and lawyers that I am entitled to Mutterschaftsurlaub regardless of where the child is born, which is great. I've also cleared with the UK What I'm entitled too and that's worked out as well. Thanks for all the input.
