I have just received a letter from my employer SSP1 saying that they will no longer paySSP from june as ' you will soon have been getting SSP for 28 weeks or you have had SSP for 28 weeks'. BUT i am working and not off sick. I am hoping it is a mistake but I also see on the SSP1 that they can stop paying if ' you have been sick on and off for more than 3 years'.............. which I have been , since 2006 with the same condition. I am worried that when i phone them up on Monday ( why do these things always come on a Saturday so you can't do anything about it !) they are going to say that because I have taken time off sick over the last few years that they are going to stop my entitlement to sick pay. My other half says that SSP is payable for 28 weeks per tax year and I am sure that my teachers pay and conditions say you get 28 weeks and then the rest of the year on half pay or something like that. Can anyone put my mind at rest ? I had 5 weeks off work before christmas 2010 - 17/11-22/12 1 week off 29/3-2/4 2010 - that was for flu so not related to my ongoing condition. 9 weeks off end of 26th MAy to July 24th 2008 5 weeks off December 2006 Apart from those times which were obviously certificated I have had 20 odd days off since September 2006 until now. thank you --- just worried at the moment.
