My Department administers the Social Insurance Fund (SIF) in relation to redundancy matters on behalf of the Department of Social and Family Affairs. There are two types of payment made from the SIF – rebates to those employers who have paid statutory redundancy to eligible employees, and statutory lump sums to employees whose employers are insolvent and/or in receivership/liquidation. I can confirm to the Deputy that my Department received a lump sum claim for the individual concerned on 11 January, 2010 and that the claim is currently being processed. It is expected that payment to the individual will be made within a three to four week period.
