So long as a person is eligible, they’ll be able to make a claim for the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme or a discretionary payment up to 28 days after the first day of their period of self-isolation.
The £500 payment will be received on top any benefits or Statutory Sick Pay payments being received.
To apply, claimants will need to turn to their local authorities as the scheme is administered and managed by unitary authorities and district councils.
Each local council may have different rules for applicants but this can also be checked online.
