Written answers (Question to Employment)

The Department's Community Welfare Service (CWS) administering the Supplementary Welfare Allowance (SWA) scheme in the Carrick-on-Shannon area received an SWA application from the person concerned on 11th July 2019. The person concerned visited the Carrick-on-Shannon office last week and during a meeting with the CWS officer, she was advised that on the provision of additional supporting information, that is required as part of the application process, a decision regarding her entitlements can be made.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
