Statutory Sick Pay Rebate Scheme temporarily reintroduced

From mid-January the Government has temporarily reintroduced the SSP rebate scheme for COVID-19 related absences.

Who can use the scheme?

This scheme is for employers. You can claim back up to 2 weeks of SSP if you:

  • are UK-based;

  • employed fewer than 250 employees on 30 November 2021;

  • had a PAYE scheme at 30 November 2021; and

  • have paid your employees’ COVID-related statutory sick pay (SSP).

What can you claim?

You'll be able to re-claim up to two weeks SSP costs you've already paid for COVID-19 related absence from 21 December 2021. These include people who test positive and those who are self-isolating.


The government's guidance has not currently been updated but we expect it to be soon!
