How to claim your £500 Covid isolation payment – and can you claim it twice?

COVID isolation payments were created to assist workers who might otherwise lose money as a result of a positive coronavirus test.

Here’s everything you need to know about the £500 grants, including if you can apply for them more than once.

Self-isolation as a result of Covid can cost hundreds of pounds per week, and with the Omicron variant ravaging the country, the number of people who need to isolate is increasing.

If you are low-income and unable to work from home, you may be eligible for a Test and Trace Support Payment of up to £500 from the government.

Here’s everything you need to know about the program and whether you qualify.

Covid cases have risen dramatically in recent weeks due to the new highly transmissible Omicron variant.

Thousands of Britons have been forced into self-isolation after testing positive for the virus, resulting in severe staff shortages in many workplaces.

The Test and Trace Support Payment program is intended to assist low-income individuals in self-isolating without incurring financial hardship.

If you suffer a loss of earnings as a result of self-isolation, you may be eligible for a payment of up to £500.

You must have been told by NHS Test and Trace that you should go into self-isolation in order to be eligible for the scheme.

If you have tested positive, or if you have been identified as a close contact of someone who has tested positive, and you are not exempt from self-isolation, NHS Test and Trace will advise you to do so.

You have a legal obligation to self-isolate if you are contacted by NHS Test and Trace and advised to do so.

You can apply for the payments again each time NHS Test and Trace advises you to self-isolate.

This means you can submit multiple applications for the payment.

If all members of a household meet the eligibility requirements, they can apply for the payment.

To be eligible for the payment, you must be employed or self-employed and able to demonstrate that you are unable to work from home and will lose income as a result of your isolation.

You must also demonstrate that you are on a low income in order to receive this payment.

You will be eligible for the scheme if you receive at least one of the following benefits:

If you aren’t receiving one of these benefits, but you are receiving another.
