Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Jobseeker's Allowance Payments
1437. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if her attention has been drawn to the fact that a person (details supplied) has had their jobseeker's allowance suspended since January 2019; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [19198/19]
The person concerned has been in receipt of Jobseekers Allowance since February 2012 and employed on a casual basis from October 2012. On review of documentation associated with this claim, queries arose regarding employment details and the claim was referred to a Social Welfare Inspector for review. While this review is on-going, I have asked my officials to process all casual dockets submitted for the person concerned. A payment has been processed for the period in question and issued on the 3rd May 2019 .
I trust that this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
