The statutory Recovery of Certain Benefits and Assistance provisions enable the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection to recover the value of certain illness-related social welfare payments from compensation awards made to persons as a consequence of personal injuries claims. The benefits are recovered from the compensator and not from the injured person.
An application for a statement of recoverable benefits was received by the Department on 18th June 2019 from AXA Insurance in relation to the person concerned. The application was processed on 24th June 2019.
A statement of recoverable benefits with covering correspondence was posted to AXA Insurance and a copy posted to the person concerned on 24th June 2019.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
