Check if you’re entitled to sick pay

If you work (and aren’t self-employed), you’re legally entitled to get Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) as long as you:

  • have started work with your employer
  • are sick for 4 full days or more in a row (including non-working days) or you’ve been told to self-isolate because of coronavirus
  • earn on average at least £120 per week (before tax)
  • are not in one of the ineligible categories
  • follow your employer’s rules for getting sick pay

You’re still entitled to SSP if you work part-time or on a fixed-term contract.
