Jobseeker claims for people living in County Meath are administered by the Intreo Centre in Navan, our Branch Offices in Trim and Kells, the Intreo Centre in Finglas and in Maynooth. Signing-on for the majority of jobseekers usually occurs no more than once in any 4-week period.

Customers can refer to www.welfare.ie for useful information on all services provided by the Department and they can also access a range of on-line services.  My Department is continuing to develop additional on-line services for customers through a myWelfare.ie application.  

The Department's service offering in County Meath is being kept under review so as to ensure the best level of access to our services by residents of the county.

I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
