Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Social Welfare Payments Administration
220. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection when arrears owed to a person (details supplied) will issue in view of the fact that full payment has been submitted to her Department by the person in respect of a debt outstanding; if a full weekly payment will be reinstated; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [18450/18]
A cheque was received as repayment towards an outstanding debt from a representative of the person concerned and was lodged to the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) debt recovery system on 24 April 2018. A receipt issued to the person concerned informing them a refund of €104.40 was due as they had exceeded the amount owed by this amount. An EFT Payment Authorisation Form was enclosed in order to refund the amount due and when this form is received, payment will issue to the person concerned without delay.
The person concerned will receive their full weekly DEASP claim entitlement from 27 April 2018.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
