The person concerned is currently in receipt of a One Parent Family Payment which will terminate on 10/10/18 as she no longer fulfils the eligibility criteria for this payment support.

The person concerned attended Edenderry Intreo Centre on 4/10/18 to submit an application for a Jobseeker's Allowance. A letter was issued on 8/10/18 confirming that a Jobseeker Allowance payment at the full single rate has been awarded.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
