According to the records of my Department the rent supplement claim for the person concerned was reviewed in April 2019. In this application the landlord confirmed a monthly rent of €400 per month and this was assessed against a State Pension Non-Contributory of €237 per week.
In several answers to Parliamentary Questions raised by the Deputy the person concerned was advised that if there had been a change in circumstance since the last review it was open to him to seek a review of his Rent Supplement entitlement.
On 28/11/19 the necessary review documents were received in my Department from the person concerned. Following completion of a review the monthly Rent Supplement rate was increased to €370 per month.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
