The person concerned submitted an online application for a Jobseeker's Allowance payment on 09/10/2020. A request for additional information in support of this application was made to the person concerned on 19/11/2020. When the requested information is submitted, a decision can be made on this claim.

Should the person concerned be experiencing financial difficulties, it is open to her to submit a request for an Exceptional Needs Payment. The Community Welfare Officer can be contacted by phone at 01 8940095.

I trust this clarifies the matter.
