The NHS and Social Care Coronavirus Life Assurance Scheme provides financial protection to the families of frontline social care and NHS staff who died from COVID-19 infections contracted in the course of their duties.

The scheme pays a tax-free £60,000 lump sum where individuals worked in high-risk settings where direct care was provided to residents and patients.

The scheme closed to new deaths on 31 March 2022 but will remain open until 31 March 2023 to allow claimants time to make outstanding claims. Please make sure the families and dependents of your colleagues, who died in service before the end of March 2022, get the opportunity to make a claim.
