The Health Service Executive (HSE) has advised that the person concerned has had her entitlement to rent supplement reviewed and advised that she has means which were not previously taken into account in the assessment of entitlement to rent supplement. The assessment of these means has resulted in the rate of rent supplement being reduced and she has been advised accordingly.
