¿How is maternity benefit calculated?
The financial benefit consists of an allowance equivalent to 100% of the base pension that will be equal to the base pension established for temporary disability benefits resulting from common contingencies, taking into account the start of the period of leave.
However, when on periods of leave under a part-time regime, the pension base of the benefit will be reduced in inverse proportion to the reduction in the working day.
For workers on part-time contracts, the daily regulatory base will be calculated by dividing the sum of the contribution bases certified with the company during the 12 months immediately prior to the suspension of employment, by 365. If the worker has been with the company for less time, the base pension will be calculated by dividing the sum of the certified contribution bases by the corresponding number of calendar days.
When the worker holds multiple jobs, the calculation bases of the different companies will be calculated, applying the maximum contribution limit in force.
