About the Construction Workers’ Sick Pay Trust

Protecting you in case of ill health

The Construction Workers’ Sick Pay Trust (Sick Pay Trust), helps members who can not work due to illness or injury. Upon registering with the Construction Workers’ Pension Scheme, all members are automatically enrolled in the Sick Pay Trust.

Both the employee and employer pay a percentage of an agreed contribution amount each week to both pension and sick pay and your employer will automatically deduct your pension contributions and your sick pay contributions from your wages. A sick pay benefit is provided at a very low weekly cost to both employer and members and sick pay benefit is paid to active members up to age 70. The Sick Pay Trust is managed by the Construction Workers’ Sick Pay Trustee DAC and benefits are paid directly from the fund without the need for medical underwriting.
