Please ensure that you have the below information available before starting the application:

  • National Insurance number
  • Your 8 character NHS Test and Trace Account ID
  • Your most recent bank statement, wage slip or proof of self-employment
  • Proof of qualifying benefits

Before you complete this form please ensure you have completed your contract tracing journey. If you have not provided all information to Test and Trace your claim for the test and trace support payment cannot be verified and therefore will not be paid.

Please note:

  • You have 10 minutes to complete each page. If you feel you need longer than this, please write your answers in a separate document, then copy and paste this into the form. This is to prevent any information being lost during the form completion.
  • Take note of file size restrictions. If the documents are too large, your application may not submit correctly.
  • To validate your bank account details, we need to share relevant information you've given us with TransUnion.  This will be used to ensure your Test and Trace Support Payment is paid to the correct bank account and to help prevent fraudulent use of the Test and Trace Support Payment scheme. This is not a credit check and won't impact your credit rating
