Written answers (Question to Employment)

The application from the person concerned to receive an increase on his Illness Benefit payment in respect of his wife and child has been processed.

A weekly increase of €78.40 for his wife and €34.00 for his child have been awarded from the 24 March 2019 to date. All arrears due to the person concerned have issued to his bank account.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
