You must make a claim up to 21 days after your period of self-isolation ends.
Applications from NHS Covid-19 App users will be accepted from those told to isolate from 1st February, 2021 onwards.
Self-isolation payments are taxable. If you’re employed, you’ll pay tax on the payment if you go over your tax-free personal allowance. Your tax code will change to collect the tax. You will not pay National Insurance contributions on the payment. If you’re self-employed you must report the payment on your Self-Assessment tax return.
