Download IB1 form

To claim illness benefit from the DEASP (department of social protection) you need to submit two things:

1) a Med1 cert: we have electronically submitted the original at the time of your consultation and can email you a copy for your records; and

2) an IB1 which you need to fill in and freepost (ie no stamp required) back to the DEASP. Please either phone 1890 800 024 to get a blank IB1, or download a scan from link above. The IB1 form needs to be submitted within 3 weeks of the start of the illness. You need to submit a new IB1 form at the start of each new illness. (Update: The DEASP have set up an online system to submit IB1 data. You may wish to do that instead of submitting the paper form. Here is the relevant link:

You may wish to advise your employer you are doing this to allow adjustment in payroll if needed. With thanks.
