Problem

Can I pay someone over state pension age SSP?

Resolution

As of 2006, in accordance with an EU directive, all age restrictions have been removed. Employees who are under 16 years of age and over 65 years, when they go sick are entitled to SSP if they satisfy all the conditions for payment.
