According to the records of my Department, an application for a Jobseeker’s payment has not been received from the person concerned.  

It is open to the person concerned to call to the Finglas Intreo Centre where she can receive information and submit an application for a Jobseeker’s payment.  Following completion of an assessment of the application, a decision will issue to the person concerned.  

An appointment can also be made at the Finglas Intreo Centre for her to see a Case Officer who can provide her with advice on options open to her in terms of seeking employment, training or education.

 I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
