Hi!

I'm posting on behalf of my Mum who has a full time retail job. We're a bit confused about her entitlement to SSP.

She became ill in April 2018 and was off work for 6 months. She was paid the full 28 weeks Statutory sick pay.

She went back to work in December 2018 and after a phased return to work, she's worked full time since. 

However, she now has another unrelated illness that is stopping her working.

Is she entitled to another 28 weeks SSP? We're confused as different websites say yes and some say no. We think as long as the last ssp ended more than 8 weeks ago - she should get it again.
