Social Security Board Clarifies

In the effort to share as much information with the public as possible, we may have caused some confusion. For clarity, COVID-19 along with its related incapacities such as isolation and quarantine, certified by a Medical Practitioner, ARE COVERED by SSB under our Sickness Benefit process following the same procedures currently in place for any other illness.

The Social Security Board in collaboration with the Labour Department, takes this opportunity to remind Insured Persons of the requirements for compensation when on Sick Leave.
