Money Advice

If your income is affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19) you may be able to claim Sick Pay or benefits to support you through this period. Your income may be affected due to working less, no longer working, self-isolating, or caring for someone who is sick.

Many employees will be protected during this period as the Government has offered a package of support to businesses to help them to retain staff.

The Government is offering employees grants to cover 80% of employees wages (up to £2,500/month per employee). This support is called the Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme. It means that you can still get 80% of your pay even if there is no work or reduced work. Your employer should contact HMRC for further details.

If you need money or benefits advice then contact Clanmil’s dedicated Money Advice Team. Our Money Advisors can help you make the right decisions. You can contact the Money Advice Team on 028 9087 7047 or email moneyadvice@clanmil.org.uk
