Can a wage arrestment be taken off your sick pay? Yes, it can. This is because sick pay, even Statutory Sick Pay (SSP) is treated as income and a wage arrestment can be taken from your sick pay.
However, if all your receive is Statutory Sick Pay, as the current amount payable is only £92.05 per week, this means nothing can be taken as the first £113.68 is protected.
However, If you are in receipt of contractual sick pay, which is an increased amount, payable over and above SSP, you may have to pay something.
