Social Welfare Benefits
Joan Burton (Minister, Department of Social Protection; Dublin West, Labour)
The person referred to was deemed eligible for participation on Community Employment (CE) on the basis of his duration in receipt of Unemployment Assistance. His weekly CE payment is calculated on this basis and with reference to previous UA and child dependent payments received from the Department. I can confirm that no payment reduction will be applied to those participating on CE and falling in to this category.
