Written answers (Question to Social)

The person concerned made an applicaiton for the living alone increase on 8th February 2022 and has been awarded the payment, at the weekly rate of €19.00 from the 10th December 2021. Payment will commence at her nominated Post Office on the 3rd March 2022.  On that date she will also be paid all arrears due including the Christmas Bonus due on a living alone increase.  The living alone allowance weekly rate of payment has been increased to €22.00 from the 7th January 2022. 

 A decision letter to that effect has been posted to the person concerned. 

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
