Written answers (Question to Social)

As of April 27th 2021, 40,853 people in receipt of the Pandemic Unemployment Payment are students; 34,727 of these being under 25. The Deputy should note that this is based on a combination of self-certified information provided by the recipients, and checks performed against administrative files from the Higher Education Authority, and should therefore be considered as an estimate only.
