Updated ‘eligibility’ section: you can make a claim for the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme or a discretionary payment up to 28 days after the first day of your period of self-isolation.
Added information on notifications through the NHS Test and Trace app and what you need to provide to your local authority when you apply for the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme.
If you have been contacted by NHS Test and Trace and told to self-isolate on or after 28 September 2020, you’re under a legal obligation to do so, and could be eligible for a £500 Test and Trace Support Payment.
This guidance sets out who can claim support and explains how to apply.
