What to do if you're a casual worker on Xs and Os during COVID-19 (Coronavirus)

Published: 13 March 2020

If you are a casual worker on ‘Xs and Os’

If you are a casual worker who submits dockets for the days you are employed, you should continue to do so if you are still working.

If you are not working because of COVID-19, you should inform your local Intreo Centre that you are out of work – and you will get the full rate of jobseeker’s payment.

You should not apply for any new payment during the COVID-19 pandemic.
