Statutory Sick Pay - is it renewed each financial year?

Posted 3rd Jun 2015
Hi all

Last year I was unlucky and caught meningitis in the brain which put me in a comatose state twice (Jan 2014). It took me 6 months recovering in hospital and another couple of months at home. All under SSP

I understand I had used my maximum SSP I could receive which is fine.

Unfortunately May just gone I was ill where I needed a week off work - I received my salary for that month to find a deduction to my basic pay and no SSP.

As I thought SSP was renewed every year like annual leave? Can anyone shed any light on this matter?
