COVID-19: Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

The Coronavirus Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme will repay employers the current rate of Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) SSP that they pay to current or former employees for periods of sickness starting on or after 13 March 2020.
If you are an employer who pays more than the current rate of SSP you can only claim the current rate amount (currently £95.85 per week).
The repayment will cover up to two weeks starting from the first day of sickness, if an employee is unable to work because they either:
  • have coronavirus
  • cannot work because they are self-isolating at home
  • are shielding in line with public health guidance 
Employees do not have to give you a doctor’s fit note for you to make a claim.
The online service you’ll use to reclaim SSP is currently not available yet. HMRC will announce when the service is available.
