Department of Social Protection
Jobseeker's Allowance Appeals
243. To ask the Minister for Social Protection when a person (details supplied) in County Limerick will receive a decision on their jobseeker's allowance appeal; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [28301/14]
I am advised by the Social Welfare Appeals Office that an Appeals Officer having fully considered all of the available evidence, including that adduced at oral hearing, has decided to allow the appeal of the person concerned. The person concerned has been notified of the Appeals Officer's decision. The Social Welfare Appeals Office functions independently of the Minister for Social Protection and of the Department and is responsible for determining appeals against decisions in relation to social welfare entitlements.
