I can advise that Jobseeker’s Allowance has been approved for the person concerned with effect from the 31-May-2019 at the weekly rate of €274.50.

The first payment will be in the Post Office on Wednesday 27th November, and arrears will be calculated and included in the following weeks payment.

I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
