Statutory employment payments to rise in 2017

Last week the government announced new rates for statutory employment payments, state pensions and most other benefits.

The current weekly rate of statutory adoption, maternity, paternity and shared parental pay will rise from £139.58 to £140.98. Statutory sick pay will also rise from £88.45 to £89.35 a week.

The annual increase in payment rates takes effect in the first full week of the tax year. In 2017, this will be the week beginning 10 April.
