‌‌Final Claims for the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme

Feb, 2022

The government has announced that the Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme will close on 17‌‌‌th ‌March‌‌‌ ‌2022. It’s important to note that you have until 24‌‌‌th ‌March‌‌‌ ‌2022, to submit any new claims for absence periods up to 17‌‌‌th ‌March‌‌‌ ‌2022 or to amend claims you have already submitted.

After 17th March 2022, you will no longer be able to claim back Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) for your employees’ coronavirus-related absences or self-isolations.

From 25‌‌‌th ‌March, it will return to the normal SSP rules, which means you can revert to paying SSP from the fourth qualifying day your employee is off work, regardless of the reason for their sickness absence. For further information on SSP rules, search for Statutory Sick Pay (SSP): employer guide on GOV‌‌‌.UK.
