Notification of Progression to Half or Nil Pay
Civil servants will receive notice as to when they are to progress to half or nil pay. In addition the civil servant will be reminded to complete a Social Security SC1 form (claim for Incapacity Benefit), upon receiving the pre-notification of progression to half or nil pay.
Managers (or delegates) are required to notify staff as soon as they themselves are informed as to when the civil servant will go on to half or nil pay and should resend any notification 4 weeks prior to any reduction. Failure to do so may result in the civil servant not receiving incapacity benefit.
