Supplementary Sick Pay Benefit
If a member is in receipt of a Sick Pay benefit from CWPS and has been refused State Illness benefit from the Department of Social Protection, he/she may be entitled to an extra benefit from CWPS known as supplementary benefit.
The supplementary benefit payable to a member from CWPS is equal to the current amount of State Illness benefit entitlement and is paid to members along with the standard Sick Pay benefit from the Scheme.
How to claim Supplementary Sick Pay Benefit
With any claim for Supplementary Sick Pay Benefit, a member must include written evidence from the Department of Social Protection stating the number of PRSI contributions credited to them and that they have been refused state benefit.
The rates of sick pay and all forms are available on the Sick Pay Trust website.
