According to the records of my Department, the rent supplement claim for the person concerned was reviewed on 28/11/19. Following completion of this review, his monthly Rent Supplement payment was increased to €370 per month. The person concerned has not made a further request for an increase in Rent Supplement since this last review.
In order to continue to be eligible for Rent Supplement, the person concerned must provide evidence to the Department that he is on the housing list with Kildare County Council. Letters requesting this information were sent to the person concerned on 6/11/2019 and 3/12/2019.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
