Test and trace Support payments

The government has announced a new national Test and Trace Support scheme.

If you are working, on a low-income and are required to self-isolate, you could be eligible for a £500 payment

Under the new scheme, payments of £500 will be available for individuals who have received notification from NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate, providing that their period of self-isolation started on or after 28 September 2020.  

The Test and Trace Support Payment is available to those receiving Universal Credit; Working Tax Credit; Income-Based Employment and Support Allowance; Income-Based Jobseeker’s Allowance; Income Support; Housing Benefit; and/or Pension Credit.

If you have been told by NHS Test and Trace to self-isolate, are working or self-employed and will lose income, you may be entitled to a Test and Trace Support Payment.

Anyone that meets the eligibility criteria and is told to self-isolate will be able to claim.

Applications for support must be made within 14 days of the end of a period of self-isolation at the latest and the scheme is available until 31 January 2021.

Information on how to apply online will be available soon. Some more information about the scheme is below.
