"Medical Certificate of Incapacity for Work"
When our Doctors direct a worker /self employed worker to self-isolate, that patient can claim €350 per week COVID-19 Illness Benefit payment for a maximum of 2 weeks (total €700) from the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP).
Before the DEASP make this special COVID payment they require two documents -
(i) "Medical E-Certificate of Incapacity for Work" - signed by the Doctor. This E-Certificate is sent by the Doctor directly to the DEASP. There is no physical paper version- this is an electronic only E-Certificate.
