A number of income supports are available from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection.
If you have been diagnosed with COVID-19, or are medically certified to self-isolate as a result of COVID-19, you can apply for Illness Benefit for COVID-19 absences which is higher than the standard rate. You can apply for this whether you are an employee or if you are self-employed.
If you are a worker affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus) there are various payments that you can claim from the department.
As well as this, you do not need to sign on or attend back to work courses for as long as the Coronavirus pandemic lasts. Weekly dockets must still be signed, however.
