General Information

Employees and employers in Northern Ireland

Arrangements in Northern Ireland are similar to those in Great Britain, but there are differences in detail.

  • Northern Ireland has its own legislation covering SSP.
  • The Incapacity Benefit Branch (IB), Castle Court, Belfast deals with Incapacity Benefit claims. For more information go to www.dsdni.gov.uk or phone 0289 03 36 000.
  • Free confidential advice on employment law is available from the Labour Relations Agency (LRA). Go to www.lra.org.uk or phone 028 9032 1442.
  • For employers in Northern Ireland or employers based elsewhere in the UK but with employees who work in northern Ireland, there is a Northern Ireland version of form SSP1 to use where an employee is not entitled to SSP. Go to Social Security Agency (SSA) website at www.dsdni.gov.uk/ssp1_cp.pdf
