Exclusive: Martin Lewis video - self-employment grant 4 announcement won’t happen till March
MoneySavingExpert.com founder Martin Lewis has had exclusive confirmation from HM Treasury that no official announcement on the fourth Self-Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS) grant will come until the Budget on 3 March - more than a month after the grant period starts.
In his speedily recorded video below, he argues that this seems unnecessarily cruel. The video also explains, analyses and has some supposition on what it means for the estimated three million excluded from any coronavirus support so far. For information about the current grant three scheme, see our Coronavirus Self Employed Help guide.
