Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned is in receipt of Supplementary Welfare Allowance since 12 April 2018 at the rate of €201.00 per week.

To transfer his claim to his new address he should make an appointment with the Community Welfare Officer at the Health Centre, Maynooth Road, Celbridge. Their phone number is 01-6303196.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
