A Social Security redundancy payment can be made to you if your employer has either refused or failed to pay you your full statutory redundancy payment.

Basic qualifying conditions

To be entitled to a redundancy payment from Social Security:

  • Your job must have ended because of redundancy
  • You must have had at least two years’ continuous employment with your employer at the date your employment ends (this date will normally be the end of your notice period)
  • You must have made all reasonable efforts (other than legal proceedings) to obtain a redundancy payment from your employer
  • Your employer has refused or failed to pay all or any part of the redundancy payment due to you
  • You must be below the normal contractual retirement age for your employment, or be less than 65 years of age, whichever is the earliest.

If you are not entitled to a redundancy payment from your employer you will not be entitled to a redundancy payment from Social Security.
