Self Isolated, don't earn enough to claim ssp

11 replies 632 views
Hi all,
I have had to self isolate for the 2nd time. My son had symptoms way back in the early days of covid, I work part time and found out that I don't earn enough to claim SSP. I lost my Dad 2 weeks ago to covid, and obviously went to see my mum for the weekend of his death. She had to do a test on the Monday and it came back positive. I had to self isolate again for the 2 weeks, and again I won't receive SSP. Does anyone know if there is any sort of benefit that I could claim. My husband works, but his earnings just cover what he has to pay out each month. Thank you in advance
