Written answers (Question to Social)

My officials have advised that the person concerned has been awarded a Rent Supplement payment with effect from 1/10/2020. A payment of €5,612.20 for the period 1/10/2020 to 16/01/2021 was available in the nominated bank account of the person concerned on 14/01/2021. A Rent Supplement entitlement of €350.76 will issue weekly thereafter.

I trust this clarifies the matter.
