Fit note temporary changes

From Friday 17 December 2021 to 26 January 2022 inclusive, DWP is making temporary changes to support the rollout of COVID-19 booster jabs.

Self-certification for sickness will be extended from seven to 28 days for people accessing Statutory Sick Pay (SSP), and there will be no requirement for a fit note to access other benefits, such as UC and ESA.

These requirements will be reinstated from 27 January 2022.
