How to claim

To claim Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), tell your employer by the deadline.

Check with your employer how you should tell them. If your employer needs something in writing you can use form SC2.

If you’re unhappy with a decision

Talk to your employer if you think:

  • their decision not to pay you SSP is wrong
  • you’re not getting the right amount of SSP

You can ask them for a reason.

If this does not sort the problem, contact the HMRC Statutory Payment Disputes Team.
