Written answers (Question to Social)

In September 2012, the rent allowance payable to the person concerned was reviewed. She was issued with an explanatory letter and the relevant forms for completion. Payment was discontinued as she had not replied, nor had she contacted the local community welfare service office.

The information requested has now been received and payment has been re-instated. The correct level of rent allowance payable to the person concerned is €725 per month.
