Written answers (Question to Social)

The Illness Benefit claim from the person concerned has been awarded at a rate of €91.10 per week. Their first payment is due to issue to them on the 26th April 2021. An award letter has issued to the person concerned giving them the full details of this decision.

It is open for the person concerned to apply for a top up to this payment under the Supplementary Welfare Allowance scheme at her local Intreo Office.  

 I hope this clarifies the position for the Deputy.
