Sick pay rule changes in full: When will the new measures come into force?


At present, SSP is worth £96.35 a week for those eligible to make a claim.

The benefit is paid by employers for up to 28 weeks after the first three days of illness – and if you are earning at least £120 a week.

Under UK law, SSP is the minimum amount you’re entitled to if you are unable to work, though your employer might pay more.

You can check your contract of employment to see if your company has a sick pay or ‘occupational’ scheme.
