A claim for Jobseeker’s Allowance by the person in question was registered in Roscommon Intreo Centre on 22 January, 2019. It was necessary to seek further information from the person in question and this information was received on 29 January. The Jobseeker’s Allowance claim has now been decided and a payment will be made on Thursday 7 February.
Claims are decided as soon as possible following receipt of application, however, where further information is required or if a case needs to be referred to a Social Welfare Inspector this may increase the processing time.
I trust this clarifies this matter for the Deputy.
