Q3.10 What Payment Will I Receive If I Do Not Intend to Return to Work

A3.10 The qualifying criteria for both OMP and SMP are the same whether you are returning to work or not. Therefore, providing you satisfy the qualifying conditions you will receive 6 weeks pay at 90% of your average weekly earnings followed by 33 weeks at the standard rate of SMP. These payments will be made on an ongoing basis and, if you are paid monthly, will be blocked into a number of weeks each month depending on the number of Saturdays in that month.
