£300 lump sum initiative beginning on  Monday 10 January

A new lump-sum payment is available to anyone who has to isolate and are unable to work.

From Monday 10 January, those having to quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19 are eligible for a £300 Manx Isolation Payment.

It replaces the system where short-term incapacity benefit could be applied for - that provided £230 a week for 14 days.

It'll be available to employees earning at least £120 per week or self-employed individuals paying Class 2 National Insurance Contributions.

It will only apply to people whose isolation period begins from 10 January.

Furthermore, it won't be available to individuals who get full pay or more than half pay for their quarantine period.
