What is the current rate for Statutory Sick Pay (SSP)?

Resolution

The weekly rate for SSP for tax year 19/20 is £94.25


NOTE: SInce the 14/15 tax year you can no longer reclaim the cost of any SSP


There is a daily rate that you pay if your employee is not due a full weeks Statutory Sick Pay. The daily rate is the weekly rate (94.25) divided by the number of Qualifying Days you use in a week. You can pay Statutory Sick Pay for up to 28 weeks in either a single Period of Incapacity for Work (PIW), or a Linked Period of Incapacity for Work unless there is a change of circumstances. If your employee's linked PIWs span 3 years you need to stop paying Statutory Sick Pay regardless of whether or not you have paid the 28 weeks of Statutory Sick Pay.
