Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection
Supplementary Welfare Allowance Eligibility
450. To ask the Minister for Employment Affairs and Social Protection if a person (details supplied) qualifies for a basic social welfare payment while awaiting a decision on an application for a carer’s benefit in respect of their parent; and if she will make a statement on the matter. [29055/19]
A decision in respect of the application made by the person concerned for Supplementary Welfare Allowance Basic payment was finalised on the 07thJune 2019. The Community Welfare Officer with responsibility for the area in which the person concerned resides advises that they made contact on 01/07/2019 and communicated the decision and the payment arrangements. Due to non collection from the designated Post Office any previous payments which have expired will be reissued to the person concerned.
I trust this clarifies the matter for the Deputy.
