Claim Redundancy Pay

Use this service to claim money if your employer owes you a redundancy payment or other money like wages, holiday and commission. 

Your employer must be unable to pay you, for example because they are insolvent. 

There is a different service if you need to claim for loss of notice pay

To be eligible you must: 

  • be a UK or EEA national (or foreign national with the right to work in the UK) 

  • have been an employee at the business 

If you are not eligible (for example you are a contractor) register as a creditor instead.  

You will need: 

  • a ‘CN’ (case reference) number 

  • your National Insurance number 

  • an email address 

  • your bank or building society details (so you can get paid) 

  • the date you became redundant (if you lost your job) - this can be found on your official letter of redundancy 

  • your employment details, including dates you were employed and how much you were paid 

  • details of any money you are owed by your employer 

  • the number of holiday days you are entitled to and holiday days you have taken 

  • copies of any letters sent to or received from your employer or an employment tribunal 

  • details of any money you still owe your employer
