I've been self-employed since early 2018, but I've been left unable to work since the lockdown was introduced. My partner is able to afford to cover my bills and other living expenses, so even though I'm eligible I haven't claimed a grant through the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS). But I won't be able to work for a while yet, and I'm thinking about doing a post-graduate degree. So while I don't need to claim, if I did when the second grant opens in a few weeks I could put the money towards the course fees.
