Important – Please read the following before completing your claim

  • This is your claim to the Manx Earnings Replacement Allowance (MERA).
  • You should not claim MERA if you have applied for the £3,000 Business Support Grant from the Department for Enterprise and have not yet heard the outcome. Wait until you receive notification and only claim MERA if your application for the Business Support Grant is disallowed.
  • You should not claim MERA if you are still receiving pay from your employer.
  • If you were employed up until your claim to MERA, you will only be awarded if you earned on average, £200 per week in 13 of the last 26 weeks (further conditions may apply).
  • If you were self-employed up until your claim to MERA, you will only be awarded if you had actually registered as a self-employed person with the Treasury before 2 March 2020 and had paid class 2 National Insurance Contributions in at least 13 of the last 26 weeks (further conditions may apply).
  • Anyone who provides false or inaccurate information in order to claim MERA is committing a criminal offense and may face legal action, including prosecution.
