The person concerned was awarded Jobseekers Allowance of €100.00 from 27th January 2014, which is the maximum for a customer between the ages of 18-24 years. He received his first payment on 5th March 2014.

The person concerned is repaying a previous overpayment and a deduction of €15.00 per week is currently being made from his weekly payment. Once this overpayment is repaid in full, he will revert to a payment of €100.00. There are no outstanding arrears due to the person concerned.
