Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned has been in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance since February 2012 and employed on a casual basis from October 2012.  On review of documentation associated with this claim, queries arose regarding employment details and the claim was referred to a Social Welfare Inspector for review.  While this review is on-going, I  have asked my officials to process all casual dockets submitted for the person concerned.  A payment has been processed for the period in question and issued on the 3rd May 2019 .

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
