Written answers (Question to Employment)

The person concerned made an application for Illness Benefit on the 12th June 2019. A decision letter is due to issue to him today, which confirms he has been awarded a weekly payment of €131.00 from 12th June 2019. The person concerned made an application for Supplementary Welfare Allowance which is currently being examined by a Community Welfare Officer and a decision will issue in due course.

I trust this clarifies the matter.
