Default Sick Benefit & PHI claim.

Hi all question: If I am claiming from my PHI policy (500 per week Irish Life) am I still entitled to claim sick benefit as I pay full PRSI and have the stamps. If so will my PHI be reduced because I am claiming sick benefit or visa versa. Also will I have to pay tax on either or both amounts ?

Illness Benefit is based on your PRSI contributions and is not means tested. AFAIK, it's taxable.

If 500 + Social Welfare is greater than 75% of your earned income, Irish Life will reduce your claim so that the combined payment is 75%.
