Applying for part payment, when on parental leave


Am I allowed to take a whole day off but only apply for part payment of parental leave taken. I am working full time but would like to take 3 weeks parental leave off and apply for 25% payment. Is that allowed?

Best Regards



  • Hello,

    Thank you for your post.

    If you are on leave for 100% you should apply for at least 5 full days of parental benefit in order to protect you Sickness benefit qualifying income (SGI).

    If you don't protect your SGI your annual incom may be reduced or withdrawn.

    If protecting the SGI is not your priority, you can apply for parental benefit in whatever way you like.

    You can read more about SGI - protection here.

    Best Regards,
