Support for returning military reservists

printer Mail

Military reservists will be able to access the self-employment income support scheme (SEISS), and those returning to work in the coming months will be eligible for the coronavirus job retention scheme (CJRS).

The Treasury has confirmed that, although the CJRS is now closed to new entrants, military service personnel returning to their day jobs after a period of active duty will still qualify for furlough, providing they work for an employer which has previously furloughed employees. The chancellor has also confirmed that self-employed army, navy and airforce reservists who are currently ineligible for the SEISS as a result of their service will be able to access a grant. The Treasury is expected to publish further information shortly.
