Written answers (Question to Minister for Family)

To qualify for back to education allowance a customer must have been in receipt of a social welfare payment for a minimum of 156 days prior to commencing the course.

The person concerned received unemployment benefit from 30 June 2005 to 26 October 2005. He does not, therefore, qualify for the back to education allowance.
