Hi all can someone give me a bit of advice as I've never done this before can I claim any sort of sickness benefit ? to cut a long story short I have been self employed for 17 yrs last year I damaged my shoulder at work I've had physiotherapy etc since the accident but this has made no difference I was told yesterday by a consultant that I now require an operation to correct the damage and will require to be off work for up to 6 months after the operation I believed I had insurance to cover however this may now not be the case ( policy wording changed apparently ) who would I contact for information on making a claim ? my ni payments are up to date , or do they not pay anything to self employed.?

Thanks

CB

If like me you paid Class 2 national insurance I very much doubt you'll get much if anything, I tried to sign on after being self-employed for years and did not get a jot !!!

Thanks Idainfife Just checking as to what contributions I've paid and yes have got all docs from the DR

Hi Maroondevo52 ( long time no speak ) hope your now well ? that's exactly what I Thought as had very little positive feedback from job centres etc Just by chance a customer told me to contact our local county council for advise they have a dept to help you fill in claims forms etc they have been fantastic made everything simple and they also check that you've filled in the forms correctly before they send them off to the relevant departments so fingers crossed I will update when I get to know more

Cheers
