Coronavirus and Income Update

• Coronavirus Job Retention Scheme.

The scheme, which pays grants to employers who have 'furloughed' their workers, was originally set to last until the end of June 2020 but has now been extended until October but with some changes.

• Second SEISS grant.

The government has announced that the Self-Employment Income Support Scheme has been extended for a second and final time. The second payment - due in August - will cover the three months of June, July and August.

• UC Reclaims easement.

Until 21st May a Universal Credit claimant would have had to have made a reclaim for Universal Credit after their Universal Credit award dropped to nil due to earnings, but the DWP have changed the rules so that they no longer need to reclaim.
