Sick Pay

You may be able to claim Sick Pay from your employer if you are sick or self-isolating. You are eligible for Sick Pay if you were employed and earning more than £118/week, even if you had a zero-hour contract. Sick Pay is paid by your employer and the statutory level is £94.25/week. Some employers pay an addition to this and you should discuss this with your employer. You will receive sick pay from the first day you are ill with Covid19 or when you self-isolate. This will be paid in the same manner as your wages.

Depending on your household income, you may be able to receive Universal Credit and Rate Rebate in addition to your sick pay. You can use the calculator to see if this is the case.
