Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned was refused jobseeker's allowance on the basis that he was not residing at the stated address when the social welfare investigator called. He has since addressed this issue and provided the Department with an explanation for his absence. A decision in relation to his entitlements will be made in the coming days and the person in question will be notified of the outcome.
